Lionel Richie

Grammy-, Golden Globe- and Academy Award-winning musical genius Lionel Richie opens up about his childhood in Tuskegee, Alabama, the prejudices he endured, and what he learned from his father about conquering adversity. Lionel hasn’t stopped making music since his debut with the Commodores in 1968 and later, a hugely successful solo career selling more than 100 million records in total. In 1985, producer Quincy Jones gave Lionel Richie and Michael Jackson the challenge of a lifetime: write a song to help end famine in Africa. Lionel reflects on what became the worldwide phenomenon known as “We Are the World.” Lionel also explains how taking a three-year hiatus from the business may have saved his life.
