“I’m here tonight to say, ‘Thank you, Stevie. Thank you for bringing our world so much wonder. Thank you for bringing us so much joy. Thank you for bringing us all so much soul’,” Alicia Keys said when presenting Stevie Wonder with the Billboard Icon Award.
The two have formed a kinship over the years. In 2004, Wonder performed “Higher Ground “with Keys and Lenny Kravitz at the MTV Video Music Awards; in 2006, they presented at the 48th Grammy Awards. This past Sunday, the talented pianists jointly gifted the world with their remarkable talents at the Billboard Awards.
During an interview with Julie Brown, the “Not Even The King” singer discussed performing with Wonder and the status of her fifth studio album.
“I’m baking up the most incredible musical cake you have ever eaten in your life. The music is coming within the next couple months.”
