At a Stevie Wonder tribute in Los Angeles' Echo Park last Saturday, the 22-time Grammy winner took the stage briefly to sing a few bars and talk to the audience about Sept. 11, the power of love and Apple's (AAPL) Steve Jobs:

"And I want you all to give a hand to someone that you know whose health is very bad at this time... His company took the challenge in making his technology accessible to everyone. In the spirit of caring and moving the world forward: Steve Jobs. Because there's nothing on the iPhone or the iPad that you can do that I can't do. As a matter of fact, I can be talking to you, you can be looking at me, and I can be doing whatever I need to do and you don't even know what I'm doing. Yeah!"
