It was a fun filled night as everyone celebrated the musical genius’ B’Day, which also included a joint performance by Shelea, Kelly, Jessie J, Donald (aka Childish Gambino), Luke James, and the man of the hour: Stevie Wonder. The group rocked out to Stevie’s classics like there was no tomorrow.

It was date night for Kelly Rowland as her husband Tim Weatherspoon came along for the birthday festivities.
Days later, Kellz was all smiles as she got ready to head out after having lunch at Wolfgang’s Steakhouse in Beverly Hills. The hot mom recently celebrated her 4th wedding anniversary and posted a sweet tribute to her hubby on social media:
Angela Bassett appeared to be in good spirits after the party.
And T.I. was dressed to the nines for the shindig.
He linked up with Donald Glover (aka Childish Gambino) during the party, likely giving him praise of his SNL hosting gig and his new "This Is America" video treatment.
After the party, Donald appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" where he gushed about singing with Stevie at the party and about asking Stevie’s permission to use his songs for his show "Atlanta." Check it:
