Last night, President and First Lady Obama presented Stevie Wonder with the Gershwin Prize at the White House. The Gershwin Prize is the country's highest honor for music.
I can attest to the fact, as I'm sure most others can, that Stevie's music has brought the highest joy, love and light into our life. (The Wonder-full parties here in NY are akin to an especially lively tent revival.) The White House was definitely the party to attend last night, with performances by will.i.am, Esperanza Spalding, Diana Krall, and Wonder himself.
PBS will broadcast the ceremony tonight at 9pm.
