Lionel Richie began his career in 1968 with a band but went on to go solo in the 1980s which is where he found his greatest success. With this hit, “Truly” which rocketed to number one, he secured his place in the musical Alist and has stayed there ever since, still playing to sold out crowds in huge venues.
One of the bestselling artists of all time, Richie has a number of strings to his bow: he is a singer and songwriter, but also plays a number of instruments, produces music, and has acted on screen. He is also well known for his personal life, with his daughter Nicole Richie going on to become a reality television star.
Richie has numerous well known hits which people from all generations and backgrounds enjoy, such as “Three Times A Lady” and “My Love”. These songs are still popular today as Richie’s work is known for having a timeless quality, thanks to the heart and soul he pours into every track, and his silky vocals to boot.
