...[Smokey Robinson] has received several awards including the Grammy Living Legend Award and has also been inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame.

The USC graduate took to her Instagram page to share a few pictures of herself on the red carpet of the award show.


In the two-slide post, the second photo was a throwback picture of herself and her grandfather from one of Lyrics' first red carpet events, thirteen years ago. 

The 'stunner,' as fans in the comment section called her, also posted a picture of herself striking a pose, as the paparazzi clicked away at their cameras.

Lyric was born to Smokey's only daughter, Tamla Robinson and the father-of-three has two other grandkids from his son, Berry Robinson.


The iconic soul singer was married to Claudette Rogers in 1959, and were together for 27 years, during which they had two children; Tamla and Berry Robinson, whose names were inspired by Smokey’s best friend, Berry Gordy. 

According to I Love Oldschool Music, Smokey filed for legal separation from Claudette in 1986, after he admitted in his book that he'd had an affair. Smokey's other son, Trey, was born shortly before their divorce battle began in 1985.

Smokey and Claudette met when they were both members of "The Miracles," a recording act for Berry Gordy's Motown Records.

Smokey worked as a producer and songwriter, and also sang lead alongside Claudette in the 5-member group. 

Forbes reported that on the eve of Valentine's Day, the singer and record producer put on a live performance at the Chicago Theatre, to the applause of fans. In response to the standing ovation given him, Smokey said:

"You know, it's really hard to make me speechless. But you have done that, Chicago."


For the stellar performance, Smokey put on a white suit while his band of professionals was clad in black.

The singer and songwriter was also the recipient of a plethora of heartfelt prayers and best wishes as he celebrated his 80th birthday on February 19, 2020.

As reported by Michigan Radio, the R&B legend has received several awards including the Grammy Living Legend Award and has also been inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame.

Smooth Radio also noted that the singer got his nickname "Smokey" from his uncle Claude, who was also his godfather.
