Singer-songwriter Lionel Richie got his start in Motown as part of the Commodores, but it's as a solo artist that he really shines. He became one of the most successful male solo artists of the 1980s, earning No. 1 hits starting with his debut in 1982 with "Truly." His other hits include the Caribbean-flavored "All Night Long," "Endless Love" with Diana Ross, "Hello" and "Say You, Say Me," which also won an Academy Award and a Golden Globe. Now the five-time Grammy winner is following up a sold-out European run with a North American tour, including a stop at the Honda Center of Anaheim. He'll perform hits from his 30-year discography, beginning with his eponymous 1982 debut and extending through 2012's Tuskegee, a platinum-selling collection that features duets of his hits with a variety of artists. Word on the street is that these concerts tend to become a giant sing-along, so brush up on your lyrics and get ready for some of the greatest ballads the '80s had to offer and much more. Sharing the stage with the five-time Grammy winner will be CeeLo Green. Known for his solo career as well as being a part of the soul duo Gnarls Barkley, Green has recorded numerous hits and is most widely recognized for the chart-topping single "Crazy" and his time as a judge on The Voice.

Founded by Eduard Schmieder in 1991, the iPalpiti (ee-PAHL-pit-ee is Italian for heartbeat) Orchestra became a flagship ensemble of iPalpiti Artists International in 1999. iPalpiti’s humanitarian mission of cultural exchange succeeded in creating a truly universal network among over 200 artists from all over the world, promoting international and cultural understanding through music. During the summer of each year, iPalpiti brings twenty-five to thirty of these exceptionally gifted professional musicians to its home-base in Los Angeles, California for the prestigious iPalpiti Festival of International Laureates where members perform in solo, ensemble, and orchestral public concerts.
iPalpiti artists, often referred to as “Musical Peace Corps,” hold claim to over 100 international competition awards. iPalpiti is internationally recognized for their breathtaking performances in Japan, Israel, Holland, Switzerland, Belgium and Italy, to name a few. “Classical music is the spiritual factor which brings people together and unites them irrespective of religion and culture, appealing to sublime senses,” states Eduard Schmieder.
