Is a chair still a chair, even when no one's sitting there? / by Kyla Marshell

In case you missed it: Here's my tribute to the great Luther Vandross and his masterpiece signature song, "A House Is Not a Home" on the Gawker Review of Books. I spoke to 3 Luther-lovers of 3 generations to get their takes on what made Luther's rendition of this song––which had already been recorded over a dozen times––so powerful; and what made him one of the greatest singers of our lifetimes.

Long Live Loofah!
