I had the honor to duet with one my my music heroes Stevie Wonder in 1988 for his MTV Music Special “Characters.” As a 7th grader with a group called Black Fuzz (because we all wore big afro’s) we performed “Superstitious.” Fast forward to me singing with him – my smiles, nerves and shyness nearly got the best of me. Then add to it the fact Stevie sang one of my songs and knocked it out of the park, botched lyrics and all.  It’s a fond memory. It was also an honor to have shared the stage with Stevie Ray Vaughn and Salt n Pepa who were also musical guests.  Read the archived article from JET Magazine: HERE
