The touching family moment was captured in a TV special ACM PRESENTS: Lionel Richie and Friends – In Concert taped at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, which will air on CBS next week.
Dressed in a yellow and black dress with her hair in a retro bouffant, mother-of-two Nicole, 30, shone as she sat next to her father at the piano while the pair sang one of his many hits.
The adopted daughter of the Hello singer inherited his love of music, and was inspired by him to perform on the We Are The World 25 For Haiti after watching him record the original as a child. Lionel’s 14-year-old daughter, Sofia, posed with her dad and big sister in the audience but didn’t join them on stage.
The landmark concert also featured performances of some of Richie’s greatest hits by talented modern-day artists including Sara Evans and Marc Anthony, who sang Endless Love, Martina McBride, and Lady Antebellum.
Tune in for the full concert special which airs on Friday, April 13, 2012 on CBS at 9 p.m.
