DAY 75 GRAMMY CHASE: HERE AND NOW

Day 75, the year was 1989, when hip hop was in its golden era and I was truly loving its transformation, R&B was also churning out some of it’s most memorable artists and recordings, one of them being Luther Vandross. Vandross was referenced in many hip hop lyrics and his first name became a phrase all in itself in thanks for his song “It’s Over Now.” I’m not sure if it was a national or regional thing, but I remember we’d use the phrase “It’s Luther.!” or “He/She’s Luther!!” meaning it was over or they were finished, done, the equivalent of today’s phrase “It’s a wrap!”

Anyhow, the 1989 release of “Here and Now” earned a Grammy for Best R&B Male Vocal Performance at the 33rd Annual. 20-something years later its still one of the most requested songs for weddings. Classic without a doubt.
