I am a true child of the 80’s and nothing quite defines this decade more than it’s music. So, it’s not surprising that I loved Lionel Richie’s Grammy tribute a few days ago. This week’s favorite thing is Demi Lovato’s tribute to Lionel Richie.

Demi Lovato’s Tribute To Lionel Richie

OK, come on…if you grew up in the 80’s, then Lionel Richie’s songs are likely woven through your memories. Back then, he was the man and I knew the words to all his songs; in fact, I probably still do!

This week, several artists came together to pay tribute to Lionel Richie, but it was Demi Lovato’s tribute that just blew me away. “Hello,”…it was such a fabulous blast from the past!
