Lionel Richie has officially been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. On Saturday, November 5, the Grammy Award-winning artist gave a powerful speech and also got the crowd on their feet as he performed his greatest hits. The musician was first introduced on stage by Lenny Kravitz before opening up his medley of hits, including “Hello,” the Commodores’ classic track “Easy,” and his popular song “All Night Long.”

“I must say also that there are people that have actually had to tolerate quite a bit,” he shared during his speech. “Sometimes when you fall in love with the music business, you tend to fall out of love and people don’t understand what the hell you’re doing over. I missed 25 years of pep rallies, bonfires, and family reunions.” Richie’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction comes on the heels of his induction into the Black Music & Entertainment Walk of Fame, where he was named a Legacy Inductee. The Library of Congress also awarded the musician the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song.

Congratulations to the legend.

4. Kenyan runners sweep 2022 New York City marathon

Kenyan runners Evans Chebet and Sharon Lokedi swept the men’s and women’s race in their debut New York City Marathon on November 6. It was reported that Lokedi, 28, won the women’s championship by crossing the finish line with a time of 2 hours, 23 minutes, and 23 seconds in her first NYC Marathon. Chebet, 33, won the men’s competition with a time of 2 hours, 8 minutes, and 41 seconds.

Chebet won the Boston Marathon earlier this year, making him just the sixth man to win Boston and New York City in the same year. His victory also means that Kenyan men have won all six annual world marathons in 2022. This year’s marathon was the first competition at full capacity since 2019. Officials canceled it in 2020 and downsized the event in 2021 due to the COVID pandemic.

5. FSG puts Liverpool up for sale

Fenway Sports Group (FSG) has put Liverpool up for sale. A full sales presentation has been produced for interested parties. FSG has looked at opportunities in the past but decided against moving forward with them. It is unclear whether or not a deal will eventually be done, but FSG is inviting offers. Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley have been retained to assist with the process.

The group has owned Liverpool since October 2010, when it bought the club from George Gillett Jr. and Tom Hicks. During that time, Liverpool appointed Jurgen Klopp as manager. They won their first Premier League title in 2019–20, which was also their first championship in 30 years. They also captured the FA Cup, the Carabao Cup, and the Champions League.
