Music moguls TERRY LEWIS and Jimmy Jam are organising a Luther Vandross tribute album, which will feature Mary J Blige, Celine Dion and Ruben Studdard.

The velvet-voiced singer died on Friday (01JUL05), aged 54, after failing to fully recover from a stroke in 2003.

Funeral arrangements are being made this week. A memorial service is planned for Friday (08JUL05) at Riverside Church in New York.

Meanwhile, fans will be able to say their fond farewells to the singer tomorrow (06JUL05) and Thursday (07JUL05) when his body goes on display at the Frank E Campbell Funeral Chapel on Madison Avenue, New York.
