“Hello?” Is it Marc Anthony you’re looking for? In the case of Lionel Richie, the answer is most definitely yes! The legendary balladeer got his own tribute concert last night with Marc backing him up behind the mic.
“[Lionel’s songs] were one of the soundtracks of my life growing up,” Anthony recently said.
And boy did he prove it, belting out Richie’s classic “Endless Love” duet alongside Sarah Evans. The special will be broadcast next week on CBS and also features appearances by Lady Antebellum, Lionel, and his daughter Nicole.
Interestingly, Richie recently paid tribute to his own musical roots. His latest album, Tuskegee, touches back on his Alabama upbringing and gives his famous songs like “You Are” and “All Night Long” an inspired country twist.
