Usher Honors Stevie Wonder With ‘If It’s Magic’ at 2015 Grammy Awards [VIDEO]
R&B superstar Usher honored soul icon Stevie Wonder at the 2015 Grammy Awards on Sunday (Feb. 8). The singer performed a special rendition of Wonder's classic song ‘If It’s Magic’ from his ‘Songs in the Key Life' album.
Last year, Wonder celebrated the album with a tour, in which he played the effort in its entirety. Backed by a harp, Usher stayed true to the original song and performed the lyrics eloquently.
Behind the crooner was a huge screen that projected trees, picturesque mountains, red-burning clouds and various happy children during the performance. As a surprise to the crowd, a svelte Stevie Wonder suddenly appeared onstage next to Usher playing a melody on his golden harmonica.
Honestly, Wonder deserves more than a one-song salute at the Grammy Awards.
Thankfully, the producers fixed that. On Feb. 16, CBS will air ‘Stevie Wonder: Songs in the Key of Life -- An All-Star GRAMMY Salute’ at 9PM ET. The two-hour special will feature performances from Janelle Monáe, Ed Sheeran, Usher, Ariana Grande and many more.
