Watch This: Lionel Richie ft. Shania Twain – Endless Love

Lionel Richie re-recorded his 1981 legendary Endless Love duet with Diana Ross by inviting country star Shania Twain to sing him with in a new updated version of the song. Shania needed a little convincing though, as she hadn’t released any new music in five years and was suffering from a vocal condition called dysophonia.

Shania made me nervous for about 15 seconds,” Richie told CTV’s Canada AM, with a grin. “She walked into the studio and said ‘I don’t think I can do this,'” he said.

Twain’s nervousness was surprising. But Richie soon realized that Twain’s jitters were understandable.

It had been seven years since Twain had recorded in studio or set foot on stage. To buoy the singer’s confidence, Richie told Twain that they were both afraid.

“But you’re Lionel Richie,” Twain replied. “Yes, and you’re Shania Twain,” he said.

Thanks to that bonding moment, Twain and Richie delivered a moving version of the tune made famous by Franco Zeffirelli’s 1981 film, Endless Love. It’s the first note that came out of her mouth. I just left it in as a reminder to her that she never lost it in the first place,” said Richie.
