Stevie Wonder Brought Barack and Michelle Obama Together--and KEEPS Them Together.
White House with Stevie Wonder
People Magazine is reporting:
"From the sounds of it, we can thank Stevie Wonder for the very existence of the new First Family. "I think it's fair to say that had I not been a Stevie Wonder fan, Michelle might not have dated me," President Barack Obama said at a White House concert before presenting the singer with the Gershwin Award for Lifetime Achievement. "We might not have married. The fact that we agreed on Stevie was part of the essence of our courtship." The East Room of the White House was transformed into a concert hall, featuring a high-wattage lineup of Wonder, Tony Bennett, Diana Krall, Martina McBride, Paul Simon and will.i.am. The performances are scheduled to air Thursday night on PBS."
and the new First Lady added this tidbit:
Michelle Obama called Wonder "one of the world's greatest artists" and said that Wonder's Talking Book was the first album she bought.
Prepare for the usual gush-fest. Michelle looked uh-maaazing in a green sleeveless empire-waisted gown designed by Stevie Wonder's wife, Kai Milla. Michelle wore her hair a bit wavy and looked just luminous. This woman is a style icon, plain and simple. Take a look for yourselves...
