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 from 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 Gexa Energy Pavilion. He'll perform hits from his 30-year discography, beginning with his eponymous 1982 debut and extending through last year'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.

Talent was there, however no stage presence!
They showed up on the stage as not clean cut, neither dressed for the occasion (evening at the concert hall).
They looked as they showed up to the rehearsal in the afternoon, after wearing the clothes for a day or two.
The UTD choir was pathetic, not synchronized.
All moved in diferent directions, causinhg a chaos on the stage, especially as a back up singers.
Despite of the black outfits for the evenig, they were inappropriate as a background group.
All should weare simple black pants and blouses - shirts. No dresses, no skirts, Unless all wore long dresses.
Naked legs were drawing attention. Not good. Some very fat!
The London-based Swingle Singers are legendary in the world of a cappella. Today, there are few music lovers who haven’t heard the name the Swingle Singers. Since the release of that ground-breaking debut album in 1963, this virtuosic seven-voice a cappella group (complete with their own vocal rhythm section) has performed on the world’s most famous stages, sustaining over four decades a level of international popularity beyond the dreams of its founder, American-born Ward Swingle.
The Swingle Singers’ performances have taken them from La Scala to Ronnie Scotts, from the soundtracks of Sex and the City to Glee. The group has won five Grammy Awards and released over 50 recordings. Their discography includes Ferris Wheels with unique arrangements of songs by Björk, Joni Mitchell, Annie Lennox, Sting and the Beach Boys. Their most recent release is Yule Songs, a winter EP.
