Opening Gala: Lionel Richie in concert, Cassandra Wilson and her musicians

Last year it was the unforgettable Stevie Wonder event… this year, the Festival hits another homerun, with another artist whom organizers have dreamt of presenting since the very beginning of the Festival: Lionel Richie! The king of the slow-dance classics (Say You, Say Me, Endless Love…), a human jukebox of dance hits (All Night Long), a prolific lyricist and composer (Lady for Kenny Rogers, We Are the World for… the world) and, of course, the singer and soul of the legendary Commodores—THE Motown stars of the ’70s—Richie has led an extraordinary and exemplary career and left his indelible mark upon American music, gold-plating four decades of our musical culture with hits we’ve all hummed, whistled—or sung at the top of our lungs! On the other side of this incredible evening, welcome back Cassandra Wilson, a dear friend of the Festival—recipient of our Miles-Davis Award in 1999—who never fails to bewitch us with her deep, velvety, sensual voice and a blues sensibility that is perfectly at home on the legendary Blue Note label. A Special Event filled with musical thrills!
