Song of the Week - There's Nothing Better Than Love


There’s Nothing Better Than Love – Luther Vandross and Gregory Hines
It warmed my heart to find this video. I’ve ALWAYS loved Luther, but Gregory Hines…something you must know about Colleenie, she loves her tap. Gregory was a triple threat, one of the all time greatest hoofers, a fine actor and a velvety, rich singing voice. The proof is in this video. Okay, Luther Vandross is your buddy, but that doesn’t mean you voluntarily sing a duet with him! Also, dude duets are tricky. This 1986 track, however, is a homerun. Both their voices blend nicely and I have to say my favorite parts of the song belong to Hines. I know it’s bittersweet to watch them; they left us way too soon, but be glad they shared their wonderful talents with us. Their work we have forever.
