    During episode two at 23:00, singer Eric Benet mentions that when he was a singer on the rise, and doing radio station rounds, he met the late singer Luther Vandross. Benet says that his initial plan was to thank Luther and go about his way. However, Vandross said something to him that changed his life forever.
