The partnership between Waterford and the Luther Vandross Estate began earlier this year when Waterford supported the Luther Vandross Foundation luncheon and presented the crystal collections. Luther 81 and limited edition 81X. This autumn, expect Luther’s music to weave its magic in Waterford’s Heritage Mastercraft Collection with ‘Don’t You Know That’, followed by the Lismore Arcus Collection with ‘A House Is Not A Home’.

David Gottlieb, manager of the Luther Vandross Estate, shared his excitement, stating, “Luther’s signature voice has been a golden thread in the tapestry of holiday music for decades. This release serves not only as a testament to his remarkable talent, but also as the gift that keeps on giving, allowing his enchanting tunes to continue to be a cherished part of family holiday traditions.”

“This is more than just a Christmas album; it’s a convergence of history, emotion and the ever-present spirit of the holidays that Luther Vandross encapsulates in his music,” said Sean Lewis, Digital Strategy Marketing Manager at Primary Wave Music. “In this specially curated EP, we invite listeners to be a part of a precious journey where rhythms and lyrics support a renewed sense of connection and joy this holiday season.
