Lionel Richie tribute Hamilton Browne has an uncanny resemblance to one of the most resilient legends of Motown. This prompted the BBC to invite Hamilton to guest alongside Lionel (himself) on the Graham Norton Show in June 2009. He appeared on BBC1 The One Show in 2010 and was also recruited by Freud Communications PR Co to do the promotion for a new Walkers Crisp ad featuring Lionel in 2010. Whilst in such great demand Hamilton travelled the length & breadth of the UK.
Before Hamilton embarked on his Lionel Richie tribute show, he was travelling the world with such icons of soul as: 4 Tops, Percy Sledge, Detroit Emeralds, Oddessy performing his hugely successful Sounds Of Soul Show. Hamilton Browne is, without doubt, the No1 Lionel Richie act around today.
