President Barack Obama
and wife Michelle
both talked about how much they just love love love Stevie Wonder and how they wouldn't be together without his music. Stevie Wonder's reply makes it sound like he wants to see more Obama babies.
Wonder said he hopes Obama can change the world for the better so he'll be inspired to write more songs about hope and love, and "you know, maybe I'll be a part of creating some more of those babies."
Clearly Stevie is already looking to the next generation as a market for his many works for sell at pretty much any store that sells music. Why else would he have performed with the Jonas Brothers?
This was only the second time the lifetime achievement award was given out. The first went to Paul Simon in 2007.
More from the AP: President Obama said he was lucky to have already loved Wonder's music when he first met his mate.
"I think it's fair to say that had I not been a Stevie Wonder fan, Michelle might not have dated me, we might not have married," Obama said, with his wife sitting in the front row. "The fact that we agreed on Stevie was part of the essence of our courtship." Barack and Michelle Obama Honor Stevie Wonder
