Beyonce and Ed Sheeran Teamed Up for Stevie Wonder Tribute
Unlikely duo Beyonce and British singer Ed Sheeran teamed up to cover Stevie Wonder’s hits at a Grammy Awards tribute concert on Tuesday.
Beyonce opened the All-Star Grammy Salute show with an energetic rendition of Wonder’s hit “Fingertips,” even performing in the aisles of the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles as she approached the veteran superstar for a hug.
Sheeran then joined her onstage to perform a medley of “Master Blaster” and “Higher Ground,” and footage shows Beyonce dancing in a black and gold dress as Sheeran, in jeans, strums his guitar.
Later in the concert, Ne-Yo duetted with Wonder’s daughter Aisha on “Isn’t She Lovely,” a song written by the music legend after her birth, and the star-studded line-up also included musical tributes from Lady Gaga, Pharrell Williams and Jennifer Hudson.
LL Cool J and Gladys Knight both gave speeches, and other performances came from OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder, Ariana Grande, Annie Lennox, John Legend and Tony Bennett.
For the finale, Wonder performed “Superstitious” and “You Are the Sunshine of My Life” as the celebrities gathered around his piano.
Stevie Wonder: Songs In The Key Of Life – An All-Star Grammy Salute air February 16 on CBS.
