“Dance with My Father” written by Luther Vandross and Richard Marx became “Song of the Year” and “Best Male R & B Vocal Performance” at the Grammy Awards in 2003.
The song is a tribute to Vandross Jr’s father, who died of diabetes when Luther was 7 years old. Even if my translation is faithful to the original text and Luther’s story, I do recognize myself in the sense of losing a parents early.
The song in Swedish, “DANCE WITH MY FATHER,” celebrates the memory of my father, when everything was still a time of love and carefree.
