I JUST CALLED TO SAY I LOVE CRAIG

The songwriting legend tells NME.COM of his love for David at the Ivor Novello Awards in London...

Songwriting legend STEVIE WONDER has revealed he would love to work with Britain’s R&B star CRAIG DAVID, NME.COM can exclusively reveal.

Speaking to NME.COM at the Ivor Novello Awards in London this afternoon, Wonder said: “If he wants to do it, I’m down with it.

“I just feel that anyone who is writing songs that have been expressive and touched not only me but the world in certain ways, then it would be my pleasure to work with him.”

And it looks as though the collaboration could happen sooner rather than later, as Wonder also said he was ready to record at any time.

“I’m always in the studio. In fact I’ve brought my little portable studio with me, so it’s a non-stop situation!”

Wonder is being joined by a host of names from the music world at the glitzy lunch in the Grosvenor House Hotel today. Craig David, The Who‘s Roger Daltrey, Sonique and Shaznay Lewis from All Saints are just a few of those who have already arrived, with U2, Coldplay and David Gray among those also expected.

NME.COM will bring you more news and a list of the winners as soon as the prizes are handed out.
