Sofia Richie has been dating one of the world's biggest popstars since early August and everyone's keen to get Lionel's opinion!
Lionel Richie was a founding member of the Commodores, a top R&B act of the 1970s. In 1982, Richie's self-titled solo debut album was a hit. "Truly", a ballad from that album, reached #1 and earned him a Grammy Award.
He enjoyed more hits, including "Hello" and "Dancing on the Ceiling."
In 1985, he co-wrote the famine relief song "We Are the World" with Michael Jackson. Richie's later albums include Louder than Words (1996) and Coming Home (2006).
In 2012, he enjoyed renewed chart success with his country album, Tuskegee. On this, he worked alongside Shania Twain, Willie Nelson and Jennifer Nettles.
