Tuskegee University alum Lionel Richie Honored at TCL Chinese Theatre

Legendary entertainer Lionel Richie joined an exclusive club of celebrities “cemented” in time when he imprinted his hands in cement at the TCL Chinese Theatre on Wednesday.

Jimmy Kimmel was the emcee of the event, where Richie received Hollywood’s oldest award.

At the event, Richie reiterated his gratitude. “I just want to say that this is probably the most out-of-body experience I have experienced in my entire life. And I’m so happy to be here to represent this and I cannot wait to get my hands and my feet in the cement.”
