Need proof that Luther Vandross was a true singer’s singer? Legends (Elton, Stevie) and young guns (Usher, Beyoncé) alike eulogize the late R&B great by covering his most beloved records on So Amazing: An All Star Tribute to Luther Vandross. If only the renditions were as good as the intentions: Aretha is downright shaky, and Donna Summer sinks ”Power of Love” into Eurotrash hell. All could learn from John Legend, whose sumptuous ”Love Won’t Let Me Wait” feels like a reverent, old-soul embrace.
