“That’s her secret,”
The proud mother was referring to her daughter’s ability to sing. The father of Sofia, 21 is the famous musician Lionel Richie. Hence she has got the genes of singing from him definitely. But will require a lot of practice though.
Will Sofia’s dad Lionel Richie help her?
Lionel is a great dad but believes that everyone has to get into the industry on their own merits and not by influence. Hence he is not going to assist Sofia in gaining a foothold in the music world. Diane said:
“Here’s the secret, she didn’t have any help from her dad, none, he’s not helping anybody. Not in a bad way, he’s like ‘If you’re gonna make it, you’re gonna make it on your own, it’s not going to be handed to you.'”
But Diane is confident of her daughter’ s talents and will. Hence Diane stated that she has no worries about her daughter and knows that she will do good in music without fail.
