Janelle Monáe gave R&B legend Stevie Wonder a kiss on the cheek during their one-on-one interview at the ASCAP ‘I Create Music’ Expo in Los Angeles on Saturday.

The 31-year-old soul songstress was clearly in awe of the 25-time Grammy winner, who turns 67 next month, as they shared the Loews Hollywood Hotel stage. The Hidden Figures and Moonlight actress, who boasts 3.4M followers, anxiously wrote before the event: ‘Do U know how NERVOUS & EXCITED I am?!’

 

 

ASCAP president Paul Williams joined Monáe to present Wonder (born Stevland Judkins) with the inaugural Key of Life Award named after his 1976 classic album.
