We’re closing in on two months before David Letterman vacates the desk at CBS’ Late Show, which means it’s time for the megastars to start saying their goodbyes. Last night, the great Stevie Wonder appeared on the program.
Wonder, who is about to kick off another leg of his Songs in the Key of Life tour, regaled the Ed Sullivan Theatre with a performance of “I Wish”. He also sat down for an interview with Letterman to discuss the 40th anniversary of the album.
At the request of Letterman, Wonder also performed “Fingertips Pt. 2”, his 1963 debut single as Little Stevie Wonder. Letterman supplied him with a “magical” mic that helped Wonder sound younger.
Perhaps the biggest highlight, however, was when Wonder did his own Top 10 List. The topic? The 10 Greatest Advantages to Being Blind. No doubt some of his reasons — “You can act like you see nothing when you really do” — will throw the Stevie Wonder truthers into a tizzy.
Replay the highlights below.
