Week in Review

Carpool Karaoke: Stevie Wonder


I know, I know, every time a new edition of “Carpool Karaoke” debuts on The Late Late Show with James Corden I include it on Week in Review. But the point of this blog is to mention some of the week’s most popular events, and with millions of YouTube views already, it’s safe to say the latest edition of "Carpool Karaoke" meets the criteria. Featuring music legend Stevie Wonder, the best parts of the clip are when Wonder perfectly mimics Corden’s English accent.


This past fall, Stevie Wonder embarked on an 11 city tour, performing his 1976 Diamond album, “Songs in the Key of Life” in its entirety. Needless to say, there were plenty of Stevie Wonder fans who wanted to attend one of his shows, but didn’t have the opportunity to since there were so few of them. However, the fans who missed out last time around may be in luck; back by popular demand, Wonder has decided to continue his tour to 12 more cities in 2015.

On the second leg of his tour, which you can find tickets for here, Wonder will again be performing the entire “Songs in the Key of Life” album, which featured hit singles such as, “Sir Duke” and “I Wish.” Although technically beginning on February 10th, most of the shows will be take place in March and April, before wrapping up in Brooklyn on April 12th. So far, including leg one and two of his tour, the average ticket price to see the musical legend is $161*.


Motown the Musical Broadway


In just three days, Motown the Musical will open on Broadway. Already tickets have been selling quick, and for the month of April, the musical is just outside of's top 10 best-selling theater acts at number 11. (It beat out shows like Annie and Billy Elliot.) It's no secret why — Berry Gordy, Jr., who founded the record company in 1960, was a bit of a musical genius. He helped launch the careers of artists like The Temptations, The Supremes, and Jackson 5. When the show opens April 14, it'll feature a huge, huge soundtrack. So here are my top picks for the best 10 songs from the classic Motown era — AKA the most difficult list I've ever had to make in my life because there were so many songs that deserved to be there.
