Kenny Rogers passed away on Saturday at the age of 81 and the whole music industry mourned his death. However, if there’s one person who felt very sad about this news it has to be another music icon, Lionel Richie.

The 70-year-old singer took to Instagram and Twitter to express how he lost one of his closest friends and that he is brokenhearted. They have shared so much laughter and adventures together. He sent prayers to Kenny Rogers’ family, too.

In addition to his tribute, the award-winning singer also posted some of his favorite throwback pictures with Rogers including those moments when they shared the stage to entertain their fans. Just so you know, the American Idol judge wrote Roger’s hit single “Lady” in 1980.

Roger’s family confirmed on Saturday the country singer’s death on social media. The family said in a statement that they are very sad to announce that he passed away at 10.25 p.m. He died peacefully at home from natural causes. He was under the care of hospice and was surrounded by his family during his parting.

In line with the pandemic brought about by COVID-19, the family plans on having a small private service. However, they look forward to celebrating the music icon’s life publicly with his fans and friends in the future.

In 2012, Rogers talked about his friendship with Richie during the Lionel Richie and Friends in Concert which was held in Las Vegas. The country singer said that Richie is not just a friend to him but the song he wrote, “Lady”, changed his whole career as a singer. He added that it is one of the most identifiable songs he had ever done.

On the other hand, Richie honored Roger’s life and legacy in the music industry by performing on October 17 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. He performed together with the Judds, Little Big Town, and the legendary Dolly Parton.

Rogers is famous for his solo music but he became more popular and went beyond country music by collaborating with other artists. Aside from Richie, he also worked with Barry Gibb and Lynda Carter. He was also part of the charity song “We Are the World” in 1984 which was performed by 45 other musicians.

Rest in peace, Kenny Rogers.

Earlier this year the world was shaken by the tragic death of Kobe Bryant.
