Lionel himself was also inducted into the Hall of Fame as an honouree because of his legendary career with the American funk and soul group the Commodores and as a solo artist too.
The hitmaker, 73, was accompanied by his partner Lisa, 33, as they posed up a storm on the red carpet prior to the event kicking off.
Smiling for the snaps as the paparazzi snapped away, the couple looked very dapper in monochromatic attire.
Lionel donned a sleek black suit with long overcoat, while Lisa wore a strapless pure white jumpsuit with wide legs.
The famous brunette model wore her mid-length locks in a sleek poker-straight style with a timeless middle parting.
Over the eight years that they have been a couple, Lionel and Lisa tend to keep their relationship and romance out of the spotlight.
Lisa, a model from Switzerland, began dating her now-beau Lionel 10 years after his marriage to second wife Diane Alexander.
The Easy singer shares two children; Miles, 28, and Sofia, 24, from his second marriage to Diane, and a daughter, Nicole Richie, 41, from his first marriage to Brenda Harvey.
In his speech after being inducted into the Hall of Fame, Richie spoke of his family having to "tolerate a lot".

"Sometimes when you fall in love with the music business, you tend to fall out of love and people don’t understand what the hell you’re doing over," he went on.
"I missed 25 years of pep rallies, bonfires, and family reunions.
“I want to thank them for actually sitting through my magical mystery tour," the hitmaker added.
"And I want to let everyone know that I am probably not coming home for quite a while. I’m in love with this business. I love what I do. Thank you so much for this amazing moment."
