Lionel Richie will be amongst the very special guests sharing the Great Oak Stage on 6 July. In December 2017, Stevie Wonder performed a cover of ‘Easy’ at Richie’s Kennedy Center Honours ceremony, which left Richie visibly emotional. He later said, "I got into the business because I wanted to be like Stevie Wonder, so for all of a sudden for Stevie to be singing my song, it was surreal."
Richie has a discography of albums and singles that are second to none. His music is part of the fabric of pop music; in fact, Richie is one of only two songwriters in history to achieve the honour of having #1 records for nine consecutive years.
Richie has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide and is an Oscar, a Golden Globe, and four-time Grammy Awards winner.

BST Hyde Park waits with excitement for her music both old and brand new on June 5th.
