Today marks Lionel Richie’s 63rd birthday, and though the man may be getting older, he’s still one of Red Karaoke’s favorites. Join us as we take a look at five of our favorite Lionel Richie karaokes, and share recordings of your own favorite on Red Karaoke’s facebook page!
It’s hard to pick our number one among all of Lionel Richie’s amazing songs, but picking five is much easier. The list has to start out with one of the most serious and simultaneously hilarious ballads of Richie’s career, Hello. Everyone knows it, everyone sings it, and everyone’s seen the awesome meme centered around it – but whether or not you think its funny or from the heart, Hello is perfect for karaoke.
Now, when it comes to dedicating that perfect song to your girlfriend, mom, grandmother – or any other leading lady in your life – Richie’s got you covered. Just start up the background intro to Three times a lady and you’ll have your woman swooning, just make sure to do Richie justice when you cover his classics.
But Richie isn’t all about the ballads, he knows how to spice it up a little bit and throw a party – All night long. With its samba twist and fun 80′s feel, there’s no way All night long couldn’t make it onto our list.
With our next pick, we might as well admit it, here at Red Karaoke we can’t get enough of Richie’s softer side. And Say you, say me is the perfect example of yet another wonderfully singable song that you can enjoy with friends, family or that special someone on karaoke night.
Last but not least is the definite heart wrenching classic ballad, and a little bit less obvious of a choice than Endless love, Lionel Richie’s super sweet Truly. With words begging the promise of forever, its the perfect karaoke ballad to dedicate to your darling.
