The former singer, songwriter, pianist and saxophonist for the Commodores and five-time Grammy Award winner brought his headliner residency, Lionel Richie: All the Hits, to Axis Theater at Planet Hollywood in April. Those hits include “Easy,” “Three Times a Lady,” “Stuck on You” and “All Night Long,” just to name a few. He’s sold more than 100 million albums, and his groundbreaking style defies all genre categorization. Born in Tuskegee, Alabama, Richie is a pop music icon and an international superstar. He says it’s of utmost importance for him to maintain a personal relationship with his fans, whom he values as one of the main reasons for his decades of success.
