That’s what I have to say about Lionel.
Lionel started out with a full ride at his college playing tennis! (no kidding. I have found that people with “over achiever” backgrounds seem to do well in singing and playing instruments! 🙂
Richie seriously considered studying divinity to become a priest with the Episcopal Church, but ultimately decided he was not “priest material” and decided to continue his musical career.
As a student in Tuskegee, In 1968 he became a singer AND saxophonist with the Commodores.
The Commodores signed a recording contract with Atlantic Records in 1968 for one record before moving on to Motown Records initially as a support act to The Jackson 5.
Richie wrote and sang many amazing (grammy winning) songs like, “Easy”, “Three Times a Lady”, “Still”, “Sail On”, “All Night Long”, Lady”, “We Are The World” (with Michael Jackson), “Hello”, “Dancing On The Ceiling”, “Endless Love”, and many many others…
Lionel is one of the biggest grossing artists of all time.
Richie’s tenth studio album, “Tuskegee” features 13 of his hit songs performed as duets with country stars including Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles, Jason Aldean, Tim McGraw, Blake Shelton, Darius Rucker, Rascal Flatts, Kenny Chesney, Billy Currington, Little Big Town, Shania Twain, Kenny Rogers, Willie Nelson, and Jimmy Buffett.
Now a lot of people have asked me if KTVA is only for rock singers?
I hope, as I continue to showcase amazing artists like Lionel, this will answer the question.
For this reason I chose “All Night Long.”
(Oh and btw, this was the last song I was able to record before lava ate my studio in Hawaii! 🙂
