Lionel Richie and his Ballerina Girl


Don’t Ballerina’s looks so beautiful and elegant. I wish I took Ballet lessons when I was young, but it’s too late. Trying to bend me now would be like trying to bend wood.

“Ballerina Girl” is a song written and recorded by Lionel Richie. The sweet thing is that it was written for his eldest daughter – Nicole Richie when she was young.

Nicole Richie got married to Joel Madden in December 2010 and this song was played as she walked down the aisle with her father.

                                    ¸♥¸•◦ How beautiful. •◦ ♥◦•


                   Enjoy the song and watch the Musical Video below.

Some Lyrics - "Ballerina Girl"


Ballerina Girl
You are so lovely
With you standing there
I'm so aware
Of how much I care for you.

You are more than now
You are for always
I can see in you
My dreams come true
Don't you ever go away.

You make me feel like
There's nothing I can't do
and when I hold you
I only want to say
I love you

Ballerina Girl
The joy you bring me
Every day and night
Holding you tight
How I've waited for your love

Sometimes I've wondered
If you'd ever come my way
Now that I've finally found you
This is where my heart will stay… etc. etc.

Ballet truly brings out the elegance in a ballerina. A cool hub that pays tribute to Lionel while drawing out the essence in dance and music. For me it is a thumbs up

I love this. To have written a song when just a girl and then it be her song at her wedding is so wonderful. Lionel Richie is great. I've always loved his music. Thank you.

Delightful! I think every girl should have ballet classes - my daughter did, and many years later she still has the grace taught at ballet. Lionel Richie delivers a strong touching performance - so sweet! Thanks for the video and sharing a part of Lionel's life.

Elena, first of all thank you for the song with the lyrics and I enjoyed it. It is nice memory for Nicole and her father especially it is dream come true for Nicole. I read also your other two hubs, Taj mahal and Eiffel tower, they were all very nice including this hub but there were no space for comment for Taj and Eiffel hubs. Over all I like your hubs and your writing style so thumbs up and beautiful.Thanks for everything.

Take care

Sometimes I close Hubs to comments if it's not a new topic. The Taj Mahal and Eiffel were particularly aimed at website search engines.
