Flack and Donny Hathaway, good friends while attending Howard University, recorded a self-titled album of duets in 1972. Five years later, the duo collaborated again on The Closer I Get to You. The Closer I Get to You was not originally written as a duet. Flack’s manager David Franklin, who had worked with Hathaway in the past, decided to re-write the song to include him. "The Closer I Get to You" Track Info. Written By James Mtume & Reggie Lucas. Cover By. The Closer I Get to You by Beyoncé (Ft. Luther Vandross). Blue Lights in the Basement Roberta Flack.

The Closer I Get to You" is a romantic ballad performed by African American jazz, soul, R&B, and folk singer-songwriter Roberta Flack and African American soul musician Donny Hathaway. The song was written by James Mtume and Reggie Lucas, two former members of Miles Davis's band, who were members of Flack's band at the time. Produced by Atlantic Records, the song was released on Flack's 1977 album Blue Lights in the Basement, and as a single in 1978.

Hathaway suffered from severe bouts of depression, and hadn't worked with Flack in years. He was hospitalized at the time, and the producers had to get permission from the hospital to fly him out and come to the sessions. Hathaway died in 1979 of an apparent suicide. It was also recorded by Luther Vandross and Beyoncé for Luther's 2003 album Dance with My Father. Matt from Boston, MaI love hard rock and, for the most part, I hate love songs.

A devastated Roberta Flack included a few of the duets that had been finished on her next album which was called Roberta Flack Featuring Donny Hathaway. Flack also vowed that The Closer I Get to You would always be dedicated to Hathaway and that all proceeds from the single would go to Hathaway’s widow and two children. After Hathaway’s death, Flack spoke to Jet Magazine: I tried to reach out to Donny. That’s how we managed to do the song we did last year. I felt this need because I didn’t know what to do. I couldn’t save him, I knew he was sick. The video for The Closer I Get to You was made after Hathaway was gone. The quality here isn’t great but you can see that his absence was handled by having the camera focus on a photo of Hathaway that is on a table behind Flack as she sits at the piano.
