Around 30 years ago Stevie Wonder and jazz legend Ella Fitzgerald recorded a song in New Orleans, now the song is brought back to life.


A rare footage of Stevie Wonder's duet with the late Ella Fitzgerald will be included in the diva's revived classics album "We All Love Ella: Celebrating The First Lady Of Song".

Grammy award winning song "You Are the Sunshine of My Life" was recorded in a duet version between Wonder and Fitzgerald in 1977. This song is among latest additions for the album that is due June 5 via Verne. Other artists also paying tribute through their covers are Michael Buble, KD Lang, Diana Krall, Natalie Cole, Gladys Knight, Queen Latifah, Hank Jones, Ledesi, Dianne Reeves, Linda Ronstadt, Etta James and Lizz Wright.

A concert for "We All Love Ella: Celebrating The First Lady Of Song" was conducted recently and will air on PBS on June 6. The concert sees Wonder playing "Too Close for Comfort", a memorable song that featured Fitzgerald and Joe Williams as a duet back in 1956.
