Luther Vandross, Ne-Yo will both sing ‘One Shining Moment’
It seems the people that are making the decisions at Turner pay attention to the people, because the kerfuffle over changing the singer of One Shining Moment appears to have made them change their mind.
Luther Vandross will be on One Shining Moment, at least the version that gets played on the TBS broadcast; TBS will be airing the National Title game this year. Ne-Yo has also recorded a version of the song and it will be the one that is used on the team-specific broadcasts on TNT and truTV.
So that solves that problem.
With all due respect to Ne-Yo -- I love Ne-Yo, his first two albums are some of the best mid-2000s R&B you’ll ever hear -- Vandross is One Shining Moment and One Shining Moment is Vandross.
