Lionel Richie performed at a private concert for 400 contest winners sponsored by WZHT-FM, Hot-105 radio station at Montgomery's Capital City Club Tuesday November 14, 2006. It was the first time in 7 years he had been to the area.
His recently released album sold 75,000 copies its first week of release, and made Billboard's 6th position on top album sales.
When asked about the possibility of reuniting with the Commodores he said, "It's just a matter of when we're going to do it because it's going to happen. I'd be surprised if it didn't."
