A NIGHT OF WONDER – THE MUSIC OF STEVIE WONDER
Featuring Ginger Commodore, Dennis Spears, Ashley Commodore and NBC’s The Voice’s Jesse Larson
A Night full of Wonder is a tribute to an all-star by some of the Twin Cities own all-stars! Be prepared to be romanced and get up and jump and dance as you sing along to Stevie’s hits like “I Wish,” “Higher Ground,” “Sir Duke,” “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours” and many, many more! There will be some “kick your shoes off” versions of his music, powerful solos and duets, soothing ballads and rollicking pop tunes to take you on Stevie’s unstoppable journey under music’s bright spotlight. The show celebrates this pioneer and innovator in the music industry. Come hear the music of Steveland Hardaway Judkins Morris, otherwise known as Stevie Wonder (perhaps the 8th wonder of the world)!
