As I was running errands this morning, I heard a radio ad announcing that Richard Marx was going to be in concert. I had been a fan back in the day and I even tried to snap a picture of him with my Canon camera.
Richard Marx was born September 16, 1983 in Chicago, Illinois. He started singing jingles that his father wrote when he was just five years old. When he was 17, Lionel Richie heard one of his demo tapes and told Richard he could make it big. Richard move to Los Angeles after graduating from high school.
Richard’s first album, Richard Marx, was released in 1987 and included four hit singles: “Don’t Mean Nothing”, “Should’ve Known Better”, “Endless Summer Nights” and “Hold on to the Nights”.
Marx released 9 more albums over the years and while his popularity has diminished over the years, his work is still great.
Marx married Cynthia Rhodes and has three sons. They reside in Illinois.
