After winning the second season of American Idol, Ruben Studdard became a household name for his classic R&B and gospel songs. Even before his debut album came out, he was already a hit, with pre-sales reaching a million. The much-awaited debut "Soulful" came out in 2003, topping the Billboard Hot 100 chart. With multiple top ten hits, the album gained platinum certification. It also led to him being nominated for the category Favorite Male R&B Vocal Performance during the 2003 Grammy Awards for his cover of "Superstar." The gospel album "I Need an Angel" came out a year later. Even though it did not fair as well as his first album, it was massively successful on the gospel charts. Two years after, "The Return" was released.
In 2008, Studdard indefinitely left his recording career and transitioned to work in theatre. He starred in the touring revival of "Ain't Misbehavin'." He came back to the studio a year after.
After recording multiple subsequent albums, Studdard recorded a tribute album for Luther Vandross, naming it "Ruben Sings Luther." Studdard continues to perform his homage to the legendary artist in multiple cities. Fans of Studdard and Vandross living close to Jericho, New York, see the performance live at the NYCB Theatre at Westbury on Sunday, October 30. Tickets are now available!
