I’m doing something a bit different tonight, but you’re gonna love it! A friend who knows I love Stevie Wonder sent me this video. I don’t know if you’re familiar with ‘Carpool Karaoke’ or not, but it’s something relatively new, a recurring segment on The Late Late Show with James Corden in which host James Corden, invites famous musical guests to sing along to their songs with him whilst travelling in a car driven by Corden on a planned route usually in Los Angeles, usually under the pretense of needing to get to work and preferring to use the high-occupancy carpool vehicle lane, or the pretext of needing directions from a local when in a new town, such as London (with Adele) or Liverpool (with Paul McCartney) or New York City (with Madonna) or Las Vegas (with Céline Dion).
I had seen the one with Paul McCartney, but didn’t realize there was an entire series of the ‘Carpool Karaoke’ videos!
James Corden, for my U.S. friends, is a British television late night host who, along with with Welsh actress Ruth Jones, co-created and co-wrote the brilliant British sitcom Gavin & Stacey which, by the way, daughter Chris absolutely loves!
Now, take a couple of minutes to watch … you’re going to laugh, I promise, especially when Stevie does his British accent!
