It was a wonderful weekend for Stevie Wonder, after the legendary singer married longtime girlfriend Tomeeka Robyn Bracy at the Hotel Bel Air.
The couple, who share two children together, exchanged vows before a star-studded guest list that included Grammy winners Pharrell Williams and Usher, both of whom reportedly performed at the reception according to The Sun. People reported that BabyFace also took to the stage to perform his hit, “Whip Appeal.”
Twenty-five time Grammy winner Wonder, 67, supposedly took over the stage later in the evening to serenade new wife Bracy. The Mirror reports that Wonder performed “Try A Little Tenderness” by Otis Reading.
“It was a beautiful wedding,” an insider told People on Thursday, July 20. “The ceremony was lavish and very romantic. There were celebrity guests, including John Legend. Family is very important to Stevie and all of his kids were involved in the wedding.”
The couple allowed phones at the reception, and posts are circulating on Twitter and Instagram of the pair dancing at their reception. For the occasion, Bracy wore a body-hugging gown paired with a head piece.
Wonder is a pro at performing at weddings, most recently taking the stage at Rory McIlroy’s nuptials. He also serenaded the crowd at John Legend’s wedding to Chrissy Teigen in Lake Como. The real question remains: what exactly was his first dance song with Bracy?
This is the third marriage for Wonder, who was previously married to Syreeta Wright (in the ’70s) and Kai Millard from 2001 to 2012. The artist and the bride have been together for five years.
