Stevie Wonder serenading Michelle Obama couldn't be more perfect

Michelle Obama is such a legend, that legends like Stevie Wonder fall at her feet.

On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon the First Lady was surprised by Wonder, who changed the lyrics to two of her favourite songs to sing them personally to her. 

Declaring his love for her before belting out Isn’t She Lovely and My Cherie Amour, the iconic singer adapted the lyrics to:

“My Michelle amour, lovely as a summer day. My Michelle amour, as sweet as flowers bloom in May. My Michelle amour, you're the only one that we adore.

“You'll always be first lady in our minds.”

Michelle Obama admitted she and the President bonded over the fact they were both big fans of Stevie Wonder’s music. She said: “That was prerequisite. He had to be able to play ball and he had to like Stevie Wonder.” 

And it seems that Wonder is also a fan of the Obamas, gushing when Michelle took to the stage to hug him and exclaiming “I'm holding the First Lady's hand, don't tell the President but I'm holding the First Lady's hand,” as he joined her on the sofa.
