Legendary singer recently honoured Michelle Obama
Footage has emerged of Stevie Wonder surprising a busker by joining in a rendition of ‘Superstitution’ at the weekend.
Grayson Erhard was performing at the Anaheim Marriott during the National Association of Music Merchant conference when Wonder walked into the hotel lobby.
He then duetted with Erhard on his famous hit. Wonder later dedicated the performance to the women’s march on Washington. You can watch footage below.
Wonder recently serenaded former First Lady Michelle Obama on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
The outgoing FLOTUS was the guest of honour on Fallon’s show, with the host bidding farewell to her husband’s administration during an episode which also saw appearances from comedians Dave Chappelle and Jerry Seinfeld.
As well as taking part in regular Fallon segments like ‘Thank You Notes’, Fallon also invited Wonder to perform for the First Lady. Performing his 1969 classic ‘My Cherie Amour’, Wonder changed the lyrics to honour Obama, calling it ‘My Michelle Amour’.
While his support for the Obama administration is unquestionable, Wonder appears to have little time for the 44th President’s successor. Ahead of the election on November 8, the 66-year-old attempted to dissuade American voters from backing Donald Trump by comparing the idea of the now President entering the White House to letting him get behind the wheel of a car.
Wonder recently had a street named after him in his hometown of Detroit.
The 66-year-old musician was present at a ceremony to celebrate Milwaukee Avenue being renamed Stevie Wonder Boulevard.
“I want to thank everyone who has made it possible for me to have a street named after myself, made it possible to walk to this place of having a Stevie Wonder Avenue,” he said ahead of a Q&A session.
Asked what it meant to have a street that he grew up on named after him, he said: “Obviously it’s an amazing feeling – unbelievable to say the least. I never imagined in my lifetime it would happen. I suppose many things in my lifetime I didn’t imagine would happen. I’m just very, very thankful.”
