#FANDROSSFRIDAY: ‘If Only For One Night’ & ‘Creepin”

In celebration of the March 1985 release of Luther’s album, The Night I Fell in Love, FANDROSS extended our March Madness mini series to ensure you got every glorious ounce of goodness from it. This album was certified Double Platinum and so as we close out this series here’s a double dose of song and facts.

“If Only for One Night” was written by singer-songwriter Brenda Russell, also known for her hit, “Piano in the Dark.” “Creepin'” was written and sung by Stevie Wonder, who plays a harmonica solo in his version. Luther’s remakes are genius.

Loads of love and gratitude to Fonzi Thornton, thorn world, for providing his archival concert footage and LGK Marketing for impeccable creativity and awesome, quality editing.

#FANDROSSFRIDAY: ‘Wait For Love’

In celebration of the release of Luther’s fourth studio album in March 1985, The Night I Fell in Love, FANDROSS has its own version of March Madness in a mini-series for you to enjoy.

This week’s feature is “Wait for Love” with rare archival concert footage from thorn world.

For all in waiting, LV knew and understood how “sometimes love takes a long time,” which may feel more like a long, long, long, long, long time … Yet he encourages you to “Wait for Love,” YOUR love. Because if you do “you’re gonna get your chance” … So be ready to grab it.

#FANDROSSFRIDAY: ‘My Sensitivity’

In celebration of the release of Luther’s fourth studio album in March 1985, The Night I Fell in Love, FANDROSS has its own version of March Madness in a mini-series for you to enjoy.

This week’s feature is “My Sensitivity.” With an intimately staged theatre-in-the-round, Luther and his vocalists create a dreamy, sexy performance of his “autobiography” song, as he called it.

As Luther slides across the stage in his lightweight cardigan, the ladies still manage to look graceful and elegant in their slinky red dresses, even though their attire had a whopping 15 pounds of beads! And it’s no wonder everyone has such polished dance moves… the choreographer for this tour, Lester Wilson, also choreographed Saturday Night Fever.
