READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
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.
