A Once-in-a-Lifetime Event

Come experience the spectacular!

It's a Valentine's Affair!

Our Performer


In 1952, A Legend was born. It was the late great 

Luther Vandross! It takes some smooth crooning to come close to the vocal greatness of that Grammy Award-Winning R&B Singer.  

Well, William “Smooth” Wardlaw comes close enough to live up to his billing as the featured voice of 

Luther Re-Lives!  

This performance experience has “Sold- Out” for nearly a decade from around the world to include 

Tom Joyner's Fantastic Voyage, Capital Jazz Super Cruise, Soul Train Cruise, and a host of others.  

“We try not to say tribute or impersonation,” says Wardlaw. “That’s why we’re called

 Luther Re-Lives, because we want people to relive those moments when Luther was on stage.”

The Alexandria, VA native relives his love for Luther’s music and vocal ability to sound like, look like, even talk like by performing the artist’s hit songs, accompanied by two backup singers and a five-piece band.
