Lionel Richie has given us nothing but the gift of his beautiful music. Over the years, he’s given us countless hits that are loved even by today’s generation. He is a legend in the world of music and nobody can ever replace him, for he is a once in a lifetime music artist.
He decided to rebirth some of his classic songs with the help of country music’s huge stars.
Stars like Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Rascal Flatts, and Jennifer Nettles, to name just a few.
With Nettles, he performed a duet to one of his most popular songs “Hello”, and not only that but they also performed it in the spotlight on the big stage.
In a video shared online, Richie and Nettles splendidly sang the song and mesmerized the audience with their beautiful vocals.
He’s just singing alone at first and it brings back good old memories.
His solid vocals are just at a different level, it’s spectacularly good that he still knows how to make his vocals ebb and swell with emotion and passion.
The anticipation for a beautiful musical treat is starting to build up inside the venue.
The audience has all eyes on him and they can’t seem to wait for Richie’s much-awaited duet with Nettles.
His daughters, Nicole and Sofia Richie, are also in attendance.
As he sings, the camera pans to his daughters, even his own kids couldn’t take their eyes off their dad. They must’ve been so proud to have a music legend as their father.
He then says, “Ladies and Gentlemen, Miss Jennifer Nettles.”
The audience instantly bursts into cheers and showers her with rounds of applause.
Just seconds after being introduced, Nettles immediately belts out with a powerful run before even hitting the first lines of her part. It’s like she’d been singing the song her entire life- it simply shows that she’s worthy of being chosen to sing alongside Richie.
Everyone lost it when Richie and Nettles walk side-by-side towards the audience.
They are both wearing their sweet smiles as they march forward to give the people a closer look at their awesome performance.
It’s such a raw and beautiful moment, yet it’s also magical. The people present that day were so blessed if I may say, to witness two great music artists is indeed a rare experience, wouldn’t you agree?
There’s no wonder why their duet gained millions of views online!
It immediately went viral once their video was uploaded online. As of this writing, it has already amassed over 3.4 million views with thousands of likes and hundreds of positive comments.
One commenter wonders why modern-age songwriters can’t write songs like this one anymore:
“Why can’t they make music like that anymore? Guess that’s why I’m paying to go see Lionel live. Awesome!”
While this one can’t get enough of Nettles’ vocals:
“Boy, there is something so rich and powerful in Jennifer Nettles voice that she brings this song in duet to a whole new threshold! The was the song was meant to be sung! What a duo! Give me more!”
And this user praised both Richie and Nettles:
“Lionel Ritchie- one of the GREAT songwriters- Jennifer Nettles one of the greatest voices out there! A great match!”
As their duet ends, the audience gives all the love back by giving Richie and Nettles in a standing ovation!
It’s such a spine-chilling performance coming from these two great singers.
Did you know that Lionel Richie started his career early?
Back in the 60s when he was still a college student, he became a member of the Commodores. Then he went solo and started his own career in 1982, since then and up until today, he’s still an active singer.
In fact, he is still one of the bests of both the past and the present generation.
On the other hand, Jennifer Nettles is a country singer, songwriter, actress, and record producer.
Since 2003, she’s been the lead vocalist of the duo Sugarland along with Kristian Bush.
