Lionel Richie Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Lionel Brockman Richie Jr., commonly known as Lionel Richie, is a well-known American musician, actor, singer and songwriter, as well as a record producer. To the public, Lionel Richie is known both as a member of a funk and soul band called “The Commodores”, and also as a successful solo artist. “The Commodores” was founded in 1968 by Lionel Richie, Thomas McClary and Milan Williams. The band achieved most of its success in the 1970s and 1980s, when they signed a record deal with “MoTown Records” and when Richie became the lead singer.

Lionel Richie Net Worth $200 Million

With Richie’s guidance, the group released several of its most famous singles, including “Three Times a Lady”, “Nightshift”, “Brick House” and “Lady (You Bring Me Up)”. Over the years, the band released fourteen studio albums, the last one being “No Tricks”, released in 1993 without the help of Richie or Thomas McClary, both of whom left the band in 1982. Inductees into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame, “The Commodores” had a huge impact on Lionel Richie’s early career.

As a solo artist, Lionel Richie debuted with a self-titled album in 1982, shortly after leaving “The Commodores”. Richie’s solo work proved to be an immense commercial success, as several singles on the album, such as “Truly”, “My Love” and “You Are” all topped the Billboard 100 chart. Such a remarkable solo debut helped Richie establish himself in the music industry as one of the most prominent and best-selling artists.

A famous musician, how rich is Lionel Richie? According to sources, in 2013 Richie added a sum of $1.5 million towards his wealth for his appearance in a promotional campaign for “Tap King”. In regards to his wealth, Lionel Richie’s net worth is estimated to be $200 million. Undoubtedly, most of Lionel Richie’s income and wealth comes from his singing career.

Lionel Richie was born in 1949, in Tuskegee, Alabama, where he studied at the Tuskegee Institute, and later continued his studies at Auburn University. While still studying at Tuskegee Institute, Richie began forming various bands until he eventually settled down with “The Commodores”, with whom he stayed until 1982. After leaving the band and releasing a commercial and critical success under the name of “Lionel Richie”, Richie went on to focus on his solo career. Following the success of his solo works, Richie came out with “Dancing on the Ceiling”, which produced an Academy Award-winning single entitled “Say You, Say Me”. “Dancing on the Ceiling” is considered to be Richie’s last commercially successful album, as his later attempts at making music were never as popular as their predecessors. When he returned after a hiatus that lasted 10 years, Lionel Richie released two more studio albums, none of which did as well on the market.

Richie’s further career consisted of many more television appearances, as he started to be featured on such shows as “Canadian Idol” and “Australian Idol”. More recently, Richie went on an “All the Hits All Night Long” tour that started in 2013.

#Quote
1 There are only twelve notes and if you're blessed enough to find 30 years in the business writing songs on twelve notes I'm the luckiest guy in the world.
2 In America, you're only as hot as your last record. In Canada, when they pass it down from generation to generation, you're part of the fabric of the country, and that's the beauty of it.
3 Every generation speaks. From the '70s and '80s on, I understood what was happening in my generation. Then came the MTV group, and that was considered off-the-chain, and some people didn't want to do it. And then comes [daughter] Nicole and her group, and there goes the neighborhood. Now we're in total reality. I call it 'overdose reality'. Everybody has a reality show now. With cellphones, everybody's a star.
4 [on putting a show together ] Were threading the needle, 'Who got married on these songs? Who went to school on these songs? Where are the frat party songs?' You have to put it all in and see what falls off the ledge.
5 [on meeting Nelson Mandela] Nothing else on this planet unglued me this way, right in front of everyone. For him to say, 'Your lyrics, your songs got me through so many days of captivity'. I just couldn't - he's talking to me, you know? It gave me a sense of real purpose: Why am I doing this?
6 I want to let everybody know that I'm from there, and country is Tuskegee. Or should I say rather, my country is Tuskegee. I was born and raised there, it's not just someplace I passed through one day.
7 It was very interesting in my world, because I grew up as a fan and I did not know that there was a thing called R&B, pop, country, classical - I just knew that I loved music.
8 It's quite interesting that in my growing up I had several influences. We had gospel music on campus. R&B music was, of course, the community, and radio was country music. So I can kind of see where all the influences came from.
9 Kids will keep it real. If I've ever had in my life a great anchor, it's them. They get in your head, 'don't get too famous.' If you think you're really famous and think you're really hip, go hang out with your kids for an afternoon. That's about as earthbound as it's going to get.
10 Taking time to sit back and watch and think about what you've seen is important. Traveling did a great deal to me. I found that when I travel and just sit in the corner and watch, a million ideas come to me.
11 The best compliment that has ever been given to me was, I was at the airport one day and a guy came in and said, 'Lionel, my wife loves you, the kids love you, my mother-in-law loves you, the family loves you.'
12 When I came up with the idea for 'Tuskegee,' I didn't want to be confined by boundaries of age, genre or demographics. I am thrilled with how well this album has been received by people from all walks of life. It is truly living up to the vision we had when we created it.
13 When I was growing up, music was music and there were no genres. We didn't look at it as country music. Popular music in Tuskegee was country music. So I didn't know it in categories. It was the radio.
14 You cannot beat the feeling of sitting on top of the charts. I had almost forgotten what it feels like... It feels great! It is really a very exciting time and I am enjoying the ride.
15 Your kids can say some cruel things to you at times. For example, Nicole, Miles and Sofie are standing there in the room and I'm dressed to kill in my own mind. They'll say to me, 'Dad, you're not going out there looking like that are you?' If that doesn't kill a star, I don't know what does!
16 'Let the music play on' would be my legacy.
17 My earliest memories of country music are the Grand Ole Opry.
18 People have allowed me into their homes, through my words and my music.
19 People, as critical as it looks, we're OK. We are in control, whether we feel it or not.
20 Believe me, I love commerce as much as the rest of the readers of 'Businessweek.' But in art, you have to be true to yourself and your musical vision. People have known me well for a long time, so if I was chasing a trend and doing something that wasn't authentic to who I am, they would know it in just a few seconds.
21 Country is bringing in a little rock element... a little '80s element. Melody is king now. But its just in the music, its not so much in the songwriting, which is still very basic to the storytelling aspect of it.
22 Exactly when people are in turmoil is the time that the entertainment business has always been at its best. Because people don't want to be reminded every day that they are under siege, or that they're not having a great time of life.
23 Growing up with country, R&B, gospel, and classical music from my grandmother and pop, Tuskegee was the perfect melting pot for my influences as a writer.
24 I knew I was going to do a country album one day. But I was just trying to figure out for the life of me, what we were going to do to make it different, unique.
25 I travel around the world, experiencing every language, every religion... some places where there's just no reason to smile, because their lives are so difficult.
26 All artists are egotistical maniacs with inferiority complexes.
27 Country music has always been about as close to R&B as you can possibly get. We're storytellers.
28 Greatness comes from fear. Fear can either shut us down and we go home, or we fight through it.
29 I always like to challenge myself. I never want to be put into a box.
30 I am a country boy and proud of it.
31 I find myself going out on the road to get my confidence back, because I lose it at home.
32 I grew up with the Grand Ole Opry, Dottie West, Conway Twitty, Buck Owens... not realizing it was influencing me as much as it was.
33 I just like people. I'll hold a conversation at a gas station. It's not about the fame and the fortune, I just like people.
34 I'm a songwriter, and people will tell you the greatest stories about their lives, whether you want to hear it or not.
35 Just when I think it couldn't get any bigger, 'Tuskegee' reaches a new level of success.
36 By growing up in Alabama, I had a melting pot of the whole pie: R&B, gospel, country.
37 I find the greatest songs in the world come out of pain, and I don't like it! Here's what it does: It strips away all of your facade. It makes you so honest. It's cleansing.
38 I think the whole world is dying to hear someone say, 'I love you.' I think that if I can leave the legacy of love and passion in the world, then I think I've done my job in a world that's getting colder and colder by the day.
39 So much of my career has been about saying things the way people say them, using melodies not that I can sing but that the people can sing.
40 Lionel Richie, love song, OK, thank you very much, good-bye. And all of a sudden I realized that, in my career, what has made my career has always been the surprises.
