On April 20, Google launched a video Doodle to celebrate the 70th birthday of multi-platinum, Grammy Award winning singer, songwriter, and producer Luther Vandross.

The Doodle was created in collaboration with Atlanta-based guest artist and animator, Sam Bass. The music video Doodle is set to "Never Too Much," the award-winning soundtrack originally written, produced and performed by Luther Vandross.

The video takes a journey through a joyful day in Luther Vandross' hometown of New York City during the '80s, while weaving in important moments throughout the singer's life.
 

Luther's family commented on the doodle:

"It is a true reflection of Luther Vandross's musical legacy around the world to be honored by Google with an animated video Doodle that fittingly captures the joy Luther has brought the world. Luther made each of his songs about one simple, universal subject-love; an emotion and feeling common to the human experience no matter who you are, where you're from or what you look like. No one else has expressed this emotion, in song, at the level Luther did for over 35 years. To have Google broadcast that around the world is a wonderful showcase of his immeasurable talent."

After battling diabetes and obesity for most of his adult life, Luther suffered a debilitating stroke on April 16, 2003 that left him confined to a wheelchair.

In an interview with Ebony magazine the following year, Luther said he was on the road to recovery and he hoped to sing again.

That same year, he won four Grammy awards to go along with the four he won in the 1990s. He picked up Grammys for R&B album of the Year, Song of the Year and Male R&B vocal performance for "Dance with My Father." He also won a Grammy for R&B performance by a duo or group for his duet with Beyonce on the remake of "The Closer I Get to You."

In a pre-recorded message for the 2004 Grammys audience, Luther said, "I want to thank everyone for your love and support. And remember, when I say goodbye, it's never for long, because I believe in the power of love."

He died from natural causes on July 1, 2005 at age 54.

Luther's successful music career culminated in eight Grammy Awards (out of 33 nominations), a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, a 1997 Super Bowl half-time show performance, and eight Billboard Top 10 albums.

Happy Birthday, Luther Vandross! The joy your music brings to the world is "never too much!"

Halle Berry has finally found her perfect match in Van Hunt. The Oscar-winning actress celebrated Van's 51st birthday with a tribute post on Instagram.

"A real woman can do it all by herself, but a real MAN won't let her," she wrote in on Monday, March 8. "I Only Wish I'd Known You Sooner," she added.

Halle, 54, endured a long history of failed relationships before she met the right man who has the patience and fortitude to handle a woman like Halle.

How do we know she found the right one? Because their body language is perfect together and he doesn’t look stressed like her other men.

Van is a R&B producer and singer who won the 2007 Best R&B Performance by a Duo Or Group Grammy Award for his song "Family Affair".

They began dating after she dumped 38-year-old music producer Alexander Grant in 2018.

Halle was married to former baseball star David Justice from 1993 to 1997. She divorced singer Eric Benet in 2005; and finalized her divorce from French actor Olivier Martinez in 2015.

She shares a daughter, Nahla Ariela Aubry, 12, with underwear model Gabriel Aubry, 45, and she and Olivier, 55, have a 7-year-old son named Maceo.

"Reflecting on the blessings," Ashanti captioned a post that shows her relaxing on a yacht in an emerald sea.

As a teenager, Ashanti wrote songs and performed in local talent shows. She got a small break as a child extra in Spike Lee's Malcolm X (1992) and in Ted Demme's Who's the Man?.

But her first love was music. Ashanti began performing around the city and she eventually came to the attention of Bad Boy Records, Jive and Murder Inc., where she was noticed by Murder Inc. CEO and co-founder Irv Gotti.

Gotti asked her to write hooks for his label artists and to perform with them in duets.

Her duets on Fat Joe's "What's Luv?" and Ja Rule's "Always on Time" helped launch the songs up the charts, becoming two of the biggest hit songs of 2002.
 

Ashanti became the first female artist to occupy the top two positions on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 singles chart at the same time.

Following the success of her collaborations with Ja Rule and Fat Joe, Ashanti released her debut single, "Foolish", which contains a sample of the 1983 song "Stay with Me" by DeBarge.

Ashanti's self-titled debut album, Ashanti, was released on Murder Inc. in April 2002 and debuted at No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard 200 albums chart. The album was certified triple platinum in the United States and sold six million copies worldwide.

The album was a fan favorite, earning 8 Billboard Music Awards, 2 American Music Awards, and a Grammy Award in 2003 for Best Contemporary R&B Album.

In July 2003, Ashanti's sophomore album, Chapter II, also debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, with first-week sales of 326,000 copies. Chapter II went platinum, selling over 1.5 million copies.

Nelly and Ashanti ended their long-term relationship in 2014 after dating 10 years. Their union produced no children and Ashanti told friends she regretted not tying the knot with the St. Louis rapper, now 45.

Disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein has tested positive for the flu-like coronavirus and is reportedly being held in isolation at the Wende Correctional Facility near Buffalo, New York.

A source tells the Press-Republican newspaper the disgraced movie producer is sick, but officials at the state Department of Corrections and Community Supervision refuse to transfer him back to New York's Bellevue Hospital, where he had a private room and TV lounge privileges.

Instead, officials revealed Weinstein is being held on a medical wing with two inmates at Wende who also tested positive for COVID-19.

Weinstein celebrated his 68th birthday behind bars on Thursday, March 19, after he was transported to the maximum-security prison following a spell at Bellevue and then the medical unit at Rikers Island prison, New York with heart issues.

He was sentenced to serve 23 years behind bars for rape and sexual assault earlier this month. In addition to his current sentence, Weinstein also faces four charges of rape and sexual assault in Los Angeles, where the District Attorney's office staff have already begun extradition procedures.

The proceedings have been delayed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Tamar Braxton recently celebrated her 43rd birthday. But if you thought she turned 43 two years ago, you were right. Read on.

While Tamar claims to be 43, her Nigerian boyfriend David Adefeso let the cat out of the bag.

In a touching Instagram post wishing his fiancee a happy birthday, David, 51, let it slip that she is actually 45.

"Happy birthday, my @tamarbraxton . You are the most beautiful girl in the World, and I can’t wait to see what amazing surprises the next 45 years brings us."

Tamar is the youngest of the singing Braxton sisters. Superstar Toni Braxton (pictured) is the eldest sibling at 52. Traci is 48; Towanda is 46, and Trina is 45. No, Trina and Tamar aren't twins; Trina turns 46 in December.

Why do some women lie about their age? They lie for a variety of reasons: insecurity, low self confidence, low self-esteem, middle age crisis, etc.

Most celebrities lie about their age to hang onto their youth a little bit longer. But if you paid attention over the years, Tamar's ex-husband Vincent Herbert tried to tell us she was lying about her age.

Little did I know walking into that busy restaurant nearly two years ago that the course of my life would change so dramatically. From the sun baked streets of Lagos to the white sands of Montego Bay and the bustling city life of suburban Mexico, you have been on a journey with me filled with laughter, tears, hope and never-ending love. Through it all your friendship has been invaluable, your counsel irreplaceable and your love unshakeable. Nothing prepared me for the complete and never-ending joy I experience with you every day. And no matter what crowded clouds appear in the horizon, the sunshine of your smile, the purity of your heart and the kindness of your words never fail to reinforce the strength of the unbreakable bond that is the love we share. You are my heart, you are my joy, you are my future, and you are my friend. Happy birthday, my @tamarbraxton . You are the most beautiful girl in the World, and I can’t wait to see what amazing surprises the next 45 years brings us.
