When my husband and I were engaged to be married, we were living in Los Angeles. There was one day that I was at home, and my phone rang. It was my soon-to-be husband on the other end. He was shopping at Circuit City (which no longer exists) and ran into Stevie Wonder. The super cool part of this story is that we had just picked the song we would be dancing to as the “first dance”, and it was Wonder’s “Ribbon in the Sky.”
It was amazing that my husband had the opportunity to tell Stevie Wonder that we had chosen his song, and so Stevie Wonder got on the phone to talk to me. “If you want, I’d love to come sing it for you at your wedding.” Say what????!!!???? “Stevie Wonder, you’d come to Tucson, AZ to my wedding to sing it? No way!” He gave us his contact info for his business office (called Wonderland) and said if his schedule allowed, he’d be there.
Unfortunately, though we sent Stevie an invitation and called him, there was never any response. Nothing beyond the conversation at Circuit City that fateful afternoon. Oh well – all’s well that ends well.
So today, a friend posted the new amazing Maroon 5 video for “Sugar” on Facebook. Adam Levine and the boys crashed weddings in Los Angeles, and the result is fantastic. My close call with Stevie Wonder pales in comparison to Maroon 5 actually showing up and surprising the heck out of these brides and grooms. You got to watch this. It’ll be sure to give you a grin for the rest of your day. Enjoy and happy Thursday to all! (Click the link to watch the video!)
