When I grow up I want to be Stevie Wonder-plain and simple. Why you might ask does a 24-year-old half Jewish white kid from Tampa, Florida want to be Stevie Wonder? Cause Stevie is the man…duh.   

This weekend, Stevie Wonder hosted his annual House Full Of Toys charity event at the Kodak Theater to benefit underprivileged children during the holiday season.  Never short on friends, Stevie invited a slew of well-known, celebrity musicians to stop by and play some tunes.  John Mayer showed up and performed a version of Waiting on the World to Change and also joined in on that Wonder classic, Superstition. John Legend also appeared for a rendition of Ordinary People.  Other singers featured included Danny Carreras and Edwin Hall, and helping with backup vocals was Wonder’s daughter, Aisha Morris.

Let’s face it: the only thing better than a Stevie Wonder concert is a Stevie Wonder concert benefiting a noble cause. That’s all I called to say…

    My brother, Charles, was one of the last two soloists at the end of “We Are The World.”

    Great concert…two corrections. It was at the Nokia Live theater, not the Kodak. And Ellis Hall was the incredible guest vocalist who sang “Do you hear what I hear” at the beginning. Not Edwin.

    Stevie still has it, in case anybody is wondering. Go see him on tour in 2008!
