Kid Rock brings a cake for Richie's birthday...
Billboard reports that Lionel Richie celebrated his 65th birthday party last night (June 20) with many friends and stars wishing him a happy birthday via video.
Richie finished most of his set at the DTE Energy Music Theatre in Independence Township, Michigian when crew and band members kept him on stage instead of going off for an encore. A group of tribute videos then played featuring Richie's friends thanking him and wishing him happy birthday, including: Barbara Streisand, Jackie Chan, John Cusack, Jimmy Buffett, Quincy Jones, Sidney Poitier, Piers Morgan, Tim McGraw, Lenny Kravitz, Luke Bryan, Enrique Iglesias, Marc Anthony, and Richie's daughters Nicole and Sofia.
After the videos, Kid Rock came out on stage with a sheet cake and sang Stevie Wonder's "Happy Birthday" and embraced Richie. Speaking at the event, Richie stated, "I love this! I cannot believe this. This is beyond!"
He then asked Kid Rock, "What are you doing here?" to which the man also known as Bob Ritchie (no relation) quipped, "I can't believe you didn't call and invite me to the show, motherf***er." Richie later finished the concert with encore of "We Are the World."
