Lionel Richie aways pulls in the crowds and this Lionel Richie tribute act is no different. Book him! With Hamilton’s uncanny resemblance to one of the most resilient legends of Motown, Lionel Richie, himself, it prompted the BBC to invite Hamilton to guest alongside Lionel (himself) on the Graham Norton Show in June 2009.
He appeared on the 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. Hamilton Browne is, without doubt, the No1 Lionel tribute around today.
Whilst in such great demand Hamilton travelled the length & breadth of the UK. Before Hamilton embarked on his 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.

He has sold over 100 million records worldwide, making him one of the world’s best-selling artists of all time. He is also a five-time Grammy Award winner. In 2016, he received the Songwriters Hall of Fame’s highest honour, the Johnny Mercer Award. In recent years, he has become a phenomenon in various Arab states and has performed in Morocco, United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Libya.
John Berman for ABC News reported in 2006 that “Grown Iraqi men get misty-eyed by the mere mention of his name. ‘I love Lionel Richie,’ they say. They can sing an entire Lionel Richie song.” Berman wrote that Richie said he was told that Iraqi civilians were playing “All Night Long” the night U.S. tanks invaded Baghdad. Richie was against the war, but says he could see a day when he would come and perform in Baghdad. (Wikipedia)
