On September 27, 2003, Luther Vandross' touching "Dance With My Father," his final Billboard Hot 100 top 40 hit, peaked at No. 38. In a 2012 visit to Billboard's New York offices, Richard Marx recalled how he came to co-write the song with Luther: "In the aftermath of me losing my dad, Luther was one of the only people who knew what to say to me. He knew when to call me … it was like telepathy. He helped me through that time tremendously."
