Stevie Wonder turned 70 last week and John Mayer celebrated the legend with a sweet moment from his own birthday. He was at a birthday dinner a few years back when everyone started singing happy birthday, he looked over and saw Stevie Wonder singing along. Mayer said that moment blew me away not just in the kindness he showed from across the room, but as a lesson on the kind of joy that’s possible to share with others when you join in their song. Ever since that day, I have always done what Stevie did for me, and sing along for anyone’s birthday at a restaurant.

Happy Birthday Stevie Wonder! I’d like to share a story about Stevie with you. Some years back, my friends took me to dinner to celebrate my birthday. On the way in, I saw Stevie sitting at what would end up being a few tables away from me. At the end of dinner, when the cake came out and my table started singing Happy Birthday, I looked over and saw Stevie Wonder singing along. That moment blew me away not just in the kindness he showed from across the room, but as a lesson on the kind of joy that’s possible to share with others when you join in their song. Ever since that day, I have always done what Stevie did for me, and sing along for anyone’s birthday at a restaurant. Stevie, today I sing along with your loved ones on your very special day. ♥️

For John Legend, summer 2020 is the summer of spreading love. That’s why he announced his highly anticipated album Bigger Love will arrive on June 19. The announcement comes following his creative music video for the soulful title track in which fans across the globe submitted videos dancing to the tune. His wife Chrissy Teigen and kiddos Luna and Miles also makes adorable appearances. Besides the soulfulness, John admitted Bigger Love is probably his sexiest album to date. So things are heating up this summer!

Taylor Swift gave one fan the surprise of her life last week as a thank you for cheering up postal workers amid the coronavirus pandemic. 11 year old Emerson Weber has spent the past few weeks of her quarantine writing letter back and forth with mail carriers hard at work delivering mail across the US. It all started with Weber writing one letter to thank you own postman and after it was shared online, mail began pouring in for the 5th grader, instantly creating a wide network of postal service pen pals across the country. One of those connections with her pen pals is their shared loved of Swift’s music. Taylor heard about Emerson’s great work and wrote her a note herself. Not only was a handwritten letter sent over, she also received some merch and a personalized wax seal to help take her letter-writing to a new level.
