Lost Christmas Gem: Luther Vandross and Chaka Khan are "Merry" together

Share this article

     Luther Vandross was one of the greatest singers of our time, a legend who was taken away too soon. Among his many accomplishments over his long career was a terrific Christmas album, This Is Christmas. It was a fantastic, lush album that brought together Christmas standards and a number of new songs, including the memorable title track.

    But on a 2012 reissue of that album, a special live recording of Luther and the great Chaka Khan singing "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" was included. It is a great performance by to all-timers, and we think SoulTrackers will love hearing it. 

    Here's the visual of their performance, with sound that is not so great.

    And below is a clearer recording of the duet. What a combination!
