Richie’s solo career began in 1982 with the release of his self-titled debut album. It produced three hits – “Truly,” “You Are” and “My Love” and sold more than four million copies. His 1983 follow-up album Can’t Slow Down sold twice as many copies and won two GRAMMY Awards including “Album of the Year.” The album contained the No. 1 hit “All Night Long,” which Richie later performed at the closing ceremony of the XXIII Olympic Games in Los Angeles in 1984.
Richie’s last album Tuskegee reached the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 after its March 2012 release. Tuskegee was certified platinum after selling one million units in the United States. Overall, Richie has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide.
“I’m so lucky to have the collection of songs that I can play for my fans each night that it becomes a giant sing-along most of the time,” said Richie. “People always ask me ‘What are you going to sing tonight Lionel?’ and I always laugh and reply ‘What are YOU going to sing tonight?’”
