Vandross memorial service set

New York – A memorial service for R&B legend Luther Vandross, who died Friday in New Jersey, has been set for Friday.

The 54-year-old singer, who sold more than 25 million albums, died from the aftermath of an April 2003 stroke that left him in a coma for nearly two months.

Despite the stroke, he won a Grammy in 2004 for his sentimental song “Dance With My Father”.
