SHRM & Lionel Richie: You Will Be Inspired.


I want to be a well-rounded Human Resources professional and considered attending SHRM‘s annual conference — especially since it’s hosted in my hometown (Chicago).

When I found out that Lionel Richie is going to be there? Oh man, I decided to book early.

Tuesday Night Show Featuring Lionel Richie

You can comb through the incredible statistics surrounding Lionel Richie’s amazing career and still miss something. You can factor in the nearly 60 million albums sold, the five Grammy’s, twenty two top ten hits, an Oscar for best song, A Golden Globe Award, a treasure chest of People’s choice and American Music Awards too numerous to count, and a discography of albums and singles that navigate an emotional landscape that only a few writer/performers have ever truly captured-and still not see what many see to be the key to his incredible music legacy. From his days with the Commodores to embarking on a solo career, Lionel Richie has always been a force to be reckoned with. Never afraid to infuse different music cultures to his music, Lionel churns out hit after hit, garnering numerous prestigious awards for his tremendous musical integrity and talent.

Some of his hits include, “Say you, Say me,” “We Are the World (Written with Michael Jackson)”,”Hello,” “All Night Long,” “Truly,” “Endless Love,” “Lady,” “Still (The Commodores)” and “Three Times a Lady (The Commodores).”

I make this solemn promise — I won’t be the same HR Generalist after seeing Nicole Richie’s dad in concert.

(H/T to A.Lo who totally knows she wants to attend the SHRM conference with me.)
