Michelle Obama proves Stevie Wonder really is her favorite

_MG_7088At the memorial for Dallas police officers held at the Meyerson on Dallas Police Chief David Brown recited a Stevie Wonder song to hundreds of his police officers who were in the audience.

President Barack Obama, who followed Brown, quipped, “I’m glad I met Michelle first, because she loves Stevie Wonder.”

When Michelle Obama appeared on The Late Late Show’s carpool karaoke, she proved the president was right when she and James Cordon began with Stevie Wonder’s “Signed Sealed Delivered.”

“I know every Stevie song on the planet,” Obama tells Cordon.

Here’s the video that also features the Obama cover of “Single Ladies” and Missy Elliott joining to sing “This Is For My Girls.”

George Michael offers Royal Wedding download

Singer George Michael returns to classic form with his latest online offering. He covers Stevie Wonder’s “You and I” specifically as a gift to Prince William and princess-to-be Kate Middleton. But he’s letting us download it for free from his site. I’m never gonna turn down a free song, but Michael hopes that for every download, listeners might contribute to the Prince William & Miss Catherine Middleton Charitable Gift Fund.

The song itself is a crisp, lush cover and brings Michael back from his adventures in auto-tune. He debuted the song last week on Piers Morgan Tonight.

I just wonder if the royal couple will dance to it at the wedding.
