The party at Ravinia Festival went ‘all night long,’ on June 11, when Lionel Richie performed to a packed crowd at the Highland Park festival.

The show was phenomenal, and I felt lucky to be there and experience it, especially with my Dad, who has always been a big Commodores fan.

If I’m going to be completely honest, my first introduction to Lionel Richie was when his daughter, Nicole, blasts “Brick House” by the Commodores while driving a hearse in an episode of one of my favorite TV shows of all time, “The Simple Life.”
