Wonder By Name...

Last night I had the privilege of going to watch Stevie Wonder perfom live at the O2. I must say I felt slightly overwhelmed at the fact that I was there watching Stevie Wonder live, and felt a tear come to my eye as he sang all the classic Stevie songs that I love.

He got the crowd up and participating:
Guys: Turn it up
Girls:Yeah yeah
Guys:Turn it up
Girls: Yeah yeah
Guys:T-t-t-t-t-t-urn it up!

No?... I guess you had to be there.

He also seemed to have a bit of a thing for Barack Obama! I kid you not. He kept randomly inserting Barack's name into the lyrics of his songs. For example:
"I just called to say, Barack Obama for pressidennttttt.... I just called to say Vote Baraaaaaack-ooooo oo oo"
Ok, so maybe that's not exactly what he did, but you get the idea.

It's nice to see Mr. Wonder believing so much in the US presidential candidate, but seriously, what difference does it make to us? We can't vote. Did no one tell Stevie this?

Anyway, I guess we all know who Stevie is going to vote for.

Either way it was fun night, and I even got to take the Thames Clipper boat all the way back to Waterloo and see the sights of London by night. Nice.
