Send a Love Letter to Luther

On April 16, 2003, Luther Vandross, world famous smooth jazz, R&B, pop, singer/songwriter, suffered a debilitating diabetes induced stroke.

Today, Luther is struggling towards full rehabilitation.

In an effort of total love for Luther, and in an attempt to raise awareness of the devastating effects of diabetes, the Verve Music Group in association with the American Diabetes Association, are kicking off 'Send A Love Letter to Luther' day beginning August 3, 2004 across the country.

Along with the love letter, contributions are being accepted by the ADA.

Letters will be presented to Vandross during a concert in October, as artists on Forever, For Always, For Luther continue in their fund raising efforts and celebration of the gift Luther has given the world through his music.

Contributions to the American Diabetes Association will be used towards raising national awareness of diabetes and helping find a cure for this horrendous disease.

Contributions can be sent to :

American Diabetes Association
Forever, For Always, For Luther Fund
1701 North Beauregard
Alexandria, VA 22311

No donation is too small to make a difference. All donations are tax deductible.
