Lionel Richie and Pixie Lott seal unlikely partnership at London's O2 Arena
Lionel Richie was joined on-stage by British pop singer Pixie Lott at his show in London over the weekend. The soul legend - who has been wowing crowds across Europe - sang Angel with Pixie, a song they duetted on for Richie's bestselling Tuskegee record.
The Commodores man also invited X Factor star Rebecca Ferguson to sing with him - the Liverpool vocalist taking the Diana Ross role during 'Endless Love'. According to Music News, Rebecca will join Lionel again in her home town on Saturday November 10, 2012. The superstar will also take to the stage in Manchester, Cardiff, Newcastle, Sheffield, Aberdeen and Glasgow before closing his Tuskegee UK tour at the Capital FM Arena in Nottingham on December 15.
Richie's latest album was a huge success in the U.S, debuting at No.2 on the Billboard 200 with solid sales of 199,000 - his best sales week since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking sales in 1991. In its third week, Tuskegee sold 129,000 copies to rise to No.1 and become his third chart topping album. It was for a time, the second best-selling album of 2012, behind Adele's all-conquering 21.
