Lionel Richie Biography - Is It Him You're Looking For?
may be hard to imagine, but this Alabama-born artist could well have become a professional tennis player after exceling in
his teens. However, he was soon holding court as a singer while attending university before joining The Commodores in 1968.
Leading lights of the Motown musical revolution alongside acts such as the Jackson 5, they were huge chart stars on both sides
of the Atlantic. However, Richie was keen to strike out on his own, first as a songwriter for hire then as a solo act, putting
out his self-titled debut LP in 1982. Scoring multiple Grammys for follow-up Can't Slow Down, he later performed for
millions at the closing ceremony of the Los Angeles Olympics in 1984, the same year his signature song 'Hello' crashed the
charts. A succession of hits soon followed throughout the decade, including 'Say You, Say Me' and 'Se La'.
In the years
since, his presence as a master entertainer and collaborator has only grown. Scoring high critical praise for his 2012 album
Tuskegee, he remains a totem of soul- a true living legend who has to be seen live to be truly appreciated. Don't miss
