Grayson Erhard was just a guy performing at the Anaheim Marriott during the National Association of Music Merchant conference over the weekend when he got the surprise of his life. Just as he started doing a cover of “Superstition”, the song’s originator, Stevie Wonder, walked into the lobby.
Erhard was at first embarrassed, admitting that he didn’t know the lyrics to the second verse. Ever the good sport, Wonder offered to join him on stage and help him with the missing words. After Wonder dedicated the performance to “the March on Washington and all the women of the world, the two traded off the first verse and chorus. Wonder then simply leaned in and whispered the lyrics into Erhard’s ear while the guitarist belted them out. What’s even better is the stunned performer held his own, keeping his cool and delivering a solid rendition while he stood right next to the living legend.
