Last Friday, musician Nelson Cade III was performing for diners at the Westwood restaurant Skylight Gardens when the bartender slipped him a note in the middle of his set.

The bartender was covertly letting Cade know that none other than 25-time Grammy winner Stevie Wonder was in the audience.

Wonder’s bodyguard then asked Cade if Wonder could join him on stage and the two performed a half-hour-long set of Wonder’s popular songs with Cade playing acoustic guitar and Wonder on steel guitar.

Larry sits down with Cade to recount the one-in-a-lifetime experience of getting to play music with one of the most celebrated and accomplished musicians of his time. Have you ever had a similar one? Join the conversation at 866-893-5722.
