10. Luther Vandross
Luther Vandross got his big break in 1974 when David Bowie recruited him to sing back-up vocals on Young Americans. His solo career didn't take off until the early Eighties when he scored big hits with "Never Too Much," "Since I Lost My Baby" and "Give Me The Reason." His career hit a new peak in 1989 with the Billboard Top 10 hit "Here And Now," and until his death in 2005 he toured and recorded as a beloved elder statesman of soul.
