Lionel Richie – The Artist
Lionel Richie Jr. (born June 20, 1949) is an American singer, songwriter, actor and record producer. Beginning in 1968, Richie was a member of the funk and soul band the Commodores. The Commodores became established as a popular soul group; 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 breakup ballad “Sail On”. Richie launched a solo career in 1982 and his 1982 debut solo album, Lionel Richie, contained three hit singles: “Truly”, “You Are” and “My Love”. The album was an international success and sold over four million copies. His 1983 follow-up album, Can’t Slow Down, sold over twice as many copies, propelling him into the first rank of international superstars. He also co-wrote the 1985 charity single “We Are the World” with Michael Jackson, which sold over 20 million copies. Richie has sold over 90 million records worldwide, making him one of the world’s best-selling artists of all time.
Truly – The Song
“Truly” is the title of the debut solo single by American singer-songwriter Lionel Richie. Resuming where he left off with D-flat major tunes “Sail On” and particularly “Still” when he was lead for the Commodores, Richie wrote the song and co-produced it with James Anthony Carmichael. Released as the first single from his self-titled debut album in 1982, “Truly”. The song was an international success, topping many charts and won numerous awards.
