Two Motown legends took to the stage during the 65th Annual Grammy Awards and the performance had everyone standing and rocking on their feet.
It has been a few years since we’ve seen Stevie Wonder, sitting effortlessly at his keyboard, but to also witness Smokey Robinson on the same stage, will be cemented in Grammy history forever. Singing a medley of Motown hits including "The Way You Do The Things You Do" and "The Tears of a Clown,” Wonder and Robinson sounded like they first did back in the early days of Motown.
The two were joined by Country singer/songwriter and eight-time Grammy winner Chris Stapleton who brought the slick twang of his guitar to the stage. And in a moment where legends meet new school artists, R&B vocal group WanMor (all teenage sons of R&B great Wanya Morris from Boyz II Men) took the stage with Wonder for a rousing version of The Temptations hit, “The Way You Do the Things You Do.”
The performance was in celebration of Robinson and Motown founder Berry Gordy who were both recognized on Friday, (Feb. 4) at the MusicCares Persons of the Year gala.
Wonder ended the special performance with his 1973 hit "Higher Ground.”
