Lionel Richie Background
Richie was born in 1949 in Tuskegee, Alabama, where he spent his childhood growing up on the Tuskegee Institute campus, of
which Richie still has fond memories. Although he spent a large part of his childhood considering becoming a priest, he ultimately
realized that music was his passion, so he decided to follow his dream of becoming a professional musician. Lionel Richie
spent much of the '60s forming one R&B group after another, but he finally scored his big break when he became a saxophonist
for the Commodores in 1968. This popular R&B group was originally intended as a support group for the Jackson 5 when they
moved to Motown Records, but alas, they become so popular that they ended up headlining their own major shows. During his
time with the Commodores, Richie cranked out hits like "Easy", "Three Times a Lady", "Brick House", and "Still", blending
a contagiously fun funk sound with smooth R&B elements.
By the 1970s, other artists had heard of Lionel Richie's
incredible songwriting and instrumental skills, and he was commissioned by several major artists to write them hit songs,
such as "Lady" by Kenny Rodgers. In 1981, Richie sang a duet with Diana Ross, the theme song for the film Endless Love, and
it become such a smash international hit that it sparked an idea in Richie – he should produce more work as a solo artist.
So in 1982, he started juggling his solo career with being the lead singer of the Commodores, and suddenly Lionel Richie was
one of the hottest stars in all of music. As a solo artist, he immediately started cranking out hit after hit, including R&B
favorites like "Truly", "My Love", and "You Are". Shortly after embarking on a solo career, Richie started raking in the awards,
including two Grammys in 1983, a collection that would grow throughout his career.
Throughout the '80s and '90s, Lionel
Richie was unstoppable. With one hit album after another, there was no doubt that Richie was a dominating force in music,
and he has been a major inspiration for aspiring artists all over the world. Throughout the past several decades, Lionel Richie
