Stevie Wonder “Glee” Tribute in the Works
Has anyone been tuning in for the latest season of Glee? Fans of the Fox musical comedy could be in for treat, as executive producer Ryan Murphy has confirmed that writers are planning a tribute show to hitmaking legend Stevie Wonder.
Murphy spilled the news Wednesday night at the Paley Center for Media, where he was honored with the inaugural PaleyFest Icon Award.The iconic crooner is set to join Michael Jackson, Madonna, Fleetwood Mac and Britney Spears as artists who have been “Glee’d.”
Glee fans have already heard one of Wonder’s songs covered on the program. During the show’s second season, Artie used the ’70s ballad “Isn’t She Lovely” to serenade Brittany in home economics class. The Stevie extravaganza is something Murphy says he’s been hoping to create since the show’s inception.
“I think we’re going to do a big Stevie Wonder tribute toward the end of this year, which I’ve wanted to do for four years. So that’s my big thing. He was my favorite when I was a kid.”
