Hunter Hayes Performing With Stevie Wonder on ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Monday
Hot country star Hunter Hayes is making a habit out of performing with legends. The 21-year-old singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist joined in an all-star jam with Blake Shelton and Stevie Wonder to close out the recent ACM awards, and now he’ll join Wonder again on Monday night (April 22) for a duet on ‘Dancing With the Stars.’
For the first time in the history of the reality competition, the remaining couples will spend an entire evening dancing to the music of a single artist. Wonder will be on hand to perform ‘Sir Duke’ and ‘My Cherie Amour’ live on the show, while the contestants will dance to more of his classics including ‘I Just Called to Say I Love You,’ ‘For Once in My Life’ and ‘Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I’m Yours).’
Hayes is slated to join the Motown legend for a duet on his opening number for the special tribute show. Like Wonder himself, Hayes was a childhood musical prodigy, performing live with the likes of Hank Williams Jr. and Brad Paisley before he was 10 years old. His critically acclaimed self-titled debut album has produced two No. 1 singles that have sold a total of nearly five million downloads to date, and he is a multiple ACM and Grammy Award nominee. Hayes is currently on tour with country superstar Carrie Underwood.
