Stevie Wonder on the future of America: "We can really come together"

After a day which saw the eyes of America focused squarely on Washington, DC for the 57th Presidential Inauguration, tonight Piers Morgan is on the ground in the nation's capital, helping to host CNN's special coverage of the Inaugural Balls.

Due to perform later this evening, Stevie Wonder set aside a few moments to chat with Morgan, reflecting upon the significance of the day. As this years occasion falls on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, an official holiday that the legendary musician campaigned hard to help create, Wonder offered a nod to the progress the country's made:

"I feel like there's so many things that I envisioned, that I saw, and those things are happening, coming true," said the 62-year-old, 22-time Grammy Award winner. "The only thing I'm hoping for is that we truly will get people together. You know, sometimes I wish we could have even more than a Democratic Party and Republican Party, a united party, where people come together, but I think that if we just get people thinking that way, we can really come together."

The man behind such classic hits as "I Just Called to Say I Love You" and "Part-Time Lover," Wonder is scheduled to sing at multiple balls this evening. Though he wouldn't reveal details of his set list, he did offer to cue up a duet:

"Are you going to come sing with me?" Wonder asked Morgan.

"What are you thinking, 'Superstition'?" answered the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host.

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, and stay tuned to CNN to see what songs Wonder sings and whether or not Morgan gets called to the mic.

    I used to love Stevie Wonder and his music but very disturbed by his words which come across as socialism and communism. We are nation of diversity not only in race, color and religion but in political parties. This gives us a balance of power and is set up to prevent one political party or government from domination – which is what Mr. Wonder subscribes to! I am sick to my stomach from statements like those made by Stevie Wonder and what is happening to this country. I will not listen or subscribe to his music any more after this, that is how strongly I feel.

    ""I feel like there's so many things that I envisioned, that I saw, and those things are happening, coming true," said the 62-year-old, 22-time Grammy Award winner. "The only thing I'm hoping for is that we truly will get people together. You know, sometimes I wish we could have even more than a Democratic Party and Republican Party, a united party, where people come together, but I think that if we just get people thinking that way, we can really come together."

      Oh yes, let's trash Stevie Wonder because he supported the innocent people of Gaza against the Israel attack and refused to preform in Israel.

    Stevie, your dream of everyone coming together will NEVER come true as long as people keep hiding under the cloak of racism. No other President except Obama has experienced such resistant from Party members. Just be realistic and hope that MOST sensible politicians will act in the best interest of the majority of Americas. I do believe that racist Americans are still the minority.

    I close my browser often for various reasons, and having to repeatedly log into my accounts like Facebook, Yahoo, Gmail, and etc, is very inconvenient and getting gold. Firefox 2 never did this, just my current Firefox 3..

    My school has both and they are the same thing. Everytime I go to a site it says either: You must have firefox, or You must have internet explorer. Also why is firefox downloadable? Wouldn't you already have a browser?. What are the add ons like? Internet explorer has tabbed browsing..
