Born in Tuskegee, Alabama, Lionel Richie grew up on the campus of Tuskegee Institute. In 1968 he became a singer and saxophonist with the Commodores. They signed a recording contract with Atlantic Records in 1968 for one record before moving on to Motown Records initially as a support act to The Jackson 5. The Commodores then became established as a popular soul group. Their first several albums had a danceable, funky sound, as in such tracks as ‘Machine Gun’ and ‘Brick House.’ Over time, Richie wrote and sang more romantic, easy-listening ballads such as ‘Easy,’ ‘Three Times a Lady,’ ‘Still,’ and the tragic breakup ballad ‘Sail On.’
