Dance With My Father by Luther Vandross

“Happy Father's Day to all you Dad's out there and to those who are no longer with us. "Dance with My Father" is the title track to singer and songwriter Luther Vandross' thirteenth studio album. With Richard Marx, Vandross wrote the song based on his personal experience. Its heart touching lyrics recall childhood memories with Vandross' father, who used to dance with him and his mother. Despite the lack of promotion due in part to Vandross' hospitalization, "Dance with My Father" became one of the most requested songs at the time.

My dad would have been 86 today - I haven't seen him in 13 years .. Here's a bit of soppy Luther while I light a candle.   13

In 2003, Vandross co-wrote the song "Dance with My Father" and dedicated it to his father. The title was based on his childhood memories and his mother's recollections of the family singing and dancing in the house. In 2004 the song won two Grammy Awards. "Back when I was a child/Before life removed all the innocence/My father would lift me high/And dance with my mother and me/"   1
