Richard Hampton is "The Real Deal"...
For most of Richard's adult life, people have commented on his remarkable resemblance to Kenny Rogers. At times people refuse to believe that he isn't Kenny Rogers traveling incognito. While living in Denver, Richard was introduced to an agent who promptly booked him in his first appearance. At this celebrity impersonators event, he noticed the other look-alikes were lip-synching their music. He asked his agent why she hadn't told him this was an option and she responded "you don't need to, you can sing". Thus started his career of amazing people as a "Kenny Rogers Impersonator".
Richard had the opportunity, after being mobbed by fans thinking he was Kenny, to go backstage and meet Kenny Rogers. Kenny remarked on their physical similarities and his band seemed convinced they must be related. Richard grew up in an orphanage so you could wonder if maybe somewhere there is a reason for this strong resemblance. Richard continues to travel and perform as one of the best "Kenny Rogers Impersonators" in the world.
