Richie Sambora and Stevie Wonder Duet
Richie had this to say about the experience, "It is almost beyond words. He was the guy that I emulated when I was a boy, and he taught me how to sing. It was an honor to meet your teacher. The first thing I did was whisper in his ear, 'I'm sure you get this a lot, but you were my inspiration as a singer.' The first thing he said is, 'You do the first verse!'"
Sambora also played his own set at the event, which included the Bon Jovi hit "Livin' on a Prayer" and the Bill Withers classic "Lean on Me." The parade airs nationwide across the U.S. on more than 350 stations in the coming 2 weeks (many on Dec 22 and Christmas Day). Check your local listings. It will also air on the Hallmark Movie Channel on Dec 20th at 5pm ET/PT, 4pm CT & Dec 24th at 11am ET/PT, 10am CT. But you don't have to wait to watch the duet. Check out video of that here.
