Lionel Richie on his amazing ride

Lionel Richie, who this month is being awarded the Library of Congress' Gershwin Prize for lifetime achievement, performing comes naturally. 

The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, lead singer of the Commodores, solo artist, and “American Idol” judge is being awarded the Library of Congress’ 2022 Gershwin Prize for Popular Song. 

"I like the way that sounds," Richie laughed. "Although you must admit, now, I mean, this is slightly overwhelming."

"You're here not as a tourist – you're being inducted?"

"I keep thinking of Tuskegee, Alabama," Richie said. "That's where it started."

Born in Tuskegee in 1949, Richie has been a worldwide superstar for some 50 years, first as one of the Commodores, then as a solo artist, and now, as a judge on "American Idol."
