R&B Giant Luther Vandross Dies at 54

Grammy Award-winning R&B singer Luther Vandross has died at the age of 54. A hospital in New Jersey did not release the cause of death, but officials did say Vandross had never fully recovered from the stroke he suffered two years ago.

Although he stopped making public appearances, Vandross continued his career after that attack, going on to win four Grammies.
