Ruben Studdard is touring the country paying tribute to the legendary Luther Vandross, bringing vocals and music like Luther performed in concert to audiences everywhere. Ruben showcases his powerful voice singing Luther Vandross hits like Always and Forever, Never Too Much, Superstar, A House is Not a Home and many more. There will never be another Luther Vandross, but Ruben comes closer to him than any other singer today.
Ruben began his amazing journey into music when he was a young boy singing at Rising Sun Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama and chose music over football to pursue his dream. In 2002, Ruben auditioned for American Idol where he made his presence known. The cuddly guy with a winning smile, who came equipped with dimples, a humble spirit and a voice so smooth that R&B legend Gladys Knight dubbed him “The Velvet Teddy Bear,” won the hearts of many and became the winner by over 100,000 votes.
In keeping with his love for music and his passion to help young people, he founded The Ruben Studdard Foundation for the Advancement of Children in the Music Arts in an effort to give back to the community while focusing on the need for music education in the school.
