Stevie And Stanley Brown

“Stevie Wonder added a moment of comic relief to boxing promoter Butch Lewis’ funeral at the Chase Center in Wilmington, Del., on Monday. The crooner wanted to play his harmonica for “The Lord’s Prayer,” so he asked the star-studded audience — which included Oscar-winning actor Denzel Washington and boxing greats Michael Spinks, Mike Tyson, Joe Frazier and Thomas Hearns —if anyone could play the song on the keyboard there. When no one piped up, Wonder asked: “Do I see any hands?”

After the laughter subsided, a young man named Stanley Brown answered the call and did such a good job he accompanied Wonder on two more tunes. We hear that Lewis, who died July 23, had wanted Wonder to perform at his 65th birthday bash on June 25, but the singer couldn’t make it. So, Stevie honored the flamboyant fight promoter posthumously with six songs.”
