Lionel Richie encouraged Marx when he was 18 to take his talents to Los Angeles (long story; it’s in the book), where he became a prolific background singer and eventually went solo. His 1987 debut album, “Richard Marx,” went ­triple-platinum, and his first ­single, “Don’t Mean Nothing,” reached No. 3 on Billboard’s Hot 100 pop chart, the first of four singles on the album to crack the top three on the Hot 100. He went on to sell more than 30 million albums worldwide. He has collaborated with, to name a few, Keith Urban, Barbra Streisand, NSYNC, Madonna and Luther Vandross, with whom he shared a 2004 Song of the Year Grammy for “Dance With My Father.”
