Photos of Michelle Obama and Barack Obama at Stevie Wonder Award Ceremony

The Obamas on Stevie Wonder: Isn't He Lovely!

Last night a grateful Barack and a stunning Michelle welcomed music legend Stevie Wonder to the White House to award him the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song. The president made it clear that awarding the prize to Stevie was not strictly business. He said: "I think it’s fair to say that had I not been a Stevie Wonder fan, Michelle might not have dated me. We might not have married."

In fact, Barack and Michelle chose "You and I" by Stevie Wonder as their wedding song. Michelle pointed out that Stevie is doing a good job wooing the younger Obamas, too. The first lady said: "He recently performed with the Jonas Brothers, thrilling a new generation of young girls, including our own."

You can watch the award ceremony, and Stevie's performance from last night, tonight on PBS at 8 p.m. (EST). The Gershwin Prize goes to an artist whose career reflects lifetime achievement in promoting song as a vehicle of musical expression and cultural understanding. Thank you Stevie for sharing your talents with the world and bringing the loving first couple together years ago!

"That dress is beautiful! How much and does it come in my size?" Haha good question! Emerald green is a gorgeous color. I always think it looks great on women who look like Michelle or on redheads like Julianne Moore or Amy Adams. So pretty.

"These Three Words" is a great love song! BTW, I was looking through the slideshow - Desirée Rogers does not look like she will be 50 yrs. old this year.

I just adore Stevie Wonder! Michelle looks fabulous and CG I agree...there should be a rule against the abuse and assault of Stevie Wonder songs by American Idol "hopefuls"!

"Yeah, about that? I feel really sad that they sang a JB song instead of a SW song! " I agree, amy! I don't know any JB songs, but...yeah, more than sure they're not as good as SW songs... :)

My favorite Stevie Song is Sir Duke, Its my childhood in a song! I like the green dress, very age appropriate fits nice, not a shapeless mess. Now if only i can get people on american idol to stop butchering his songs!
