VIDEO - Justin Bieber and Stevie Wonder Unite for “Someday At Christmas” Duet – Classic!

Stevie Wonder and Justin Bieber sing Some Day at Christmas

Sometimes in life things come around full circle.

I remember right when Justin Bieber started to become famous, I watched the YouTube video of him singing Stevie Wonder’s “Someday at Christmas” when he was only 12-years-old.

Bieber’s voice was as pure as it could get - standing alone on that stage in Stratford Ontario - not even aware that in a very short time his life was going to be changed forever.

In fact, I still occasionally watch that video to remind myself how pure and innocent his voice was. See if you agree…

Doesn’t that just give you goose bumps? I mean really…

Then, a few years later, Bieber graced the stage at the White House and had the amazing opportunity to sing the very same song in front of President and Mrs. Obama and their two daughters.

It was good, but you could tell his nerves may have got the best of him – but it was still good. See if you agree…

Not bad right?

But last night Justin had the rarest opportunity of all – to sing “Someday at Christmas” with the man himself… Stevie Wonder!

Justin joined Stevie on stage at the "Stevie’s House Full of Toys" benefit concert at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles and they both did what they do so well.

Not bad eh?

Well… actually, we thought it was a bit weak and seemed as if it had been thrown together at the last minute and only rehearsed once.

Justin started late, sang flat in some places and was terribly sharp at the end. It seemed like neither one of them knew what the other was going to do.

I guess you really can’t out master the master after all.

In the end I still go back to that little 12 year old kid, alone on the stage in Stratford, singing his heart out in a talent contest without the bright glare of the World staring at him.

Sometimes it’s the simple things that are the sweetest.

Know what I mean?
