Celebrating 30 years since her debut single ‘Dreams’ went to No.1 in the UK Charts, Gabrielle is known for her incredible soul sound with hits including ‘Out of Reach’, ‘Sunshine’, and ‘Should I Stay’.
These hits have seen her win two BRITs (Best British Female and Best British Breakthrough), as well MOBO Awards for Best Single (‘Give Me A Little More Time’) and Best Album (‘Rise’). After being nominated on five separate occasions, she won her first Ivor Novello Award in 2008 when she was honoured with the prestigious accolade for Outstanding Song Collection.
Lionel Richie’s music is part of the fabric of popular culture with more than 125 million albums sold worldwide. Richie has won an Oscar®, a Golden Globe®, four Grammy Awards®, and was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 2022 Class.
Last year he received the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song by the American Library of Congress, and is the 12th recipient of the prestigious award.
Richie’s mega-hits such as ‘All Night Long’, ‘Dancing on the Ceiling’, ‘Hello’, ‘Endless Love’, ‘Lady’, ‘Truly’, ‘Penny Lover’, ‘Stuck on You’, ‘Say You, Say Me’, as well as his hits with The Commodores including ‘Three Times a Lady’, ‘Still’, and ‘Easy’, have seen him become one of music’s best-loved and most iconic stars.
