Book Lionel Richie
Singer – USA
Imagine booking Lionel Richie for your special event – we can make it happen as a Lionel Richie booking agency. Lionel Richie is a legendary R&B singer-songwriter who was the front man for Motown band the Commodores & who has won four Grammy Awards. Lionel Richie first started his music career with The Commodores and their first several albums had a danceable, funky sound, as in such tracks as ‘Machine Gun’ and ‘Brick House.’ Over time, Richie wrote and sang more romantic, easy-listening ballads such as ‘Easy,’ ‘Three Times a Lady,’ ‘Still,’ and the tragic breakup ballad ‘Sail On.’
By the late 1970s, Lionel Richie had begun to accept song writing commissions from other artists. Lionel Richie composed ‘Lady’ for Kenny Rogers, which hit #1 in 1980, and produced Rogers’s album Share Your Love the following year. Latin jazz composer and salsa romantica pioneer La Palabra enjoyed international success with his cover of ‘Lady,’ which was played at Latin dance clubs.
