Stevie Wonder coming to Charlotte

I got goosebumps when the e-mail hit my inbox: Stevie Wonder is performing at Bobcats Arena. Whoa!

I absolutely love him. I have all of his box sets. He’s all up in my iPod. I’m so excited. Stevie Wonder in Charlotte! Sorry, I know I’m gushing.

Okay, okay. Here are the details: The “A Wonder Autumn Night Tour” comes to Bobcats Arena on Nov. 28 and to the RBC in Raleigh on Nov. 29. Tickets go on sale 10 a.m. Nov. 2.

There’s so many great Wonder songs, ugh, I’m getting a headache trying to decide on a favorite. But I guess I'd have to say “Fingertips.” He was called Little Stevie Wonder back then. He sounded so young, and that song is so lively. You could feel his youthfulness and excitement.

What’s your favorite Stevie Wonder song? Post your reply below.

Urban fashions are more than baggy pants

You may not know his name, but you’ve probably seen his style.
Designer Renaldo Nehemiah says he’s outfitted rappers Chingy and Kanye West, along with model Eva and others. On Saturday, he was among the many designers at the inaugural Urban Fashion Week at the
Blake Hotel.

Charlotte is one of several cities, including Houston, who have an urban fashion week. Dozens of models showed off the latest designers, ranging from denim to overcoats to hoodies and more.

Nehemiah, born Renaldo Nehemiah McFarland, recently moved here from Miami, and he attended Olympic High for one year. Nehemiah, who does everything from wallets to shoes, said his newest venture is on the hush-hush, but you’ll see it soon.
