Ruben Studdard, the Grammy-nominated R&B, gospel and pop singer was the winner of American Idol’s second season. He has recorded six studio albums, appears frequently on tv, toured extensively and has sold over two million albums worldwide.

Studdard officially confirmed that he will be releasing "Ruben Sings Luther" to his musical hero Luther Vandross on March 16th and will be launching a 25-city ‘Always and Forever Tour’ starting in Sacramento, Calif., on April 8.

“My goal was to not only to pay tribute to Luther but to add my own passion on top of Luther’s brilliant songs… I recorded ‘Superstar’ awhile back which was Grammy nominated and sang different Luther songs during my live shows. But people always asked when I was going to do an album of Luther’s songs. Happily, the day has arrived. It was a thrilling experience selecting the songs from his different albums and putting my own interpretation on them. I am so proud of this record”, commented Ruben. “As for the tour, we are not only recreating the beautiful production elements, musicians, background singers, wardrobe and lighting that were ever present when Luther took the stage, but my heart and soul will be in every note I sing as I honor one of the greatest vocalists we’ve ever had.”

Ruben Studdard performs Friday, March 29 at 8 p.m. at The Newton Theatre, 234 Spring Street in Newton, NJ. Tickets start at $44 and are available for purchase at The Newton Theatre box office, online at www.TheNewtonTheatre.com, or by calling 973-940-NEWT.
