Wonder Is Huge Fan Of Shaheen
Schoolboy singing sensation SHAHEEN JAFARGHOLI has a superstar fan - STEVIE WONDER.
The 12 year old Brit stunned the world with his amazing performance of the Jackson 5 hit Who's Loving You at the late singer's memorial service in Los Angeles on Tuesday (07Jul09).
In a series of pictures taken backstage at the event, he is seen hugging fellow performers Lionel Richie, Smokey Robinson, and Jennifer Hudson.
The youngster, who first found fame on U.K. TV hit Britain's Got Talent earlier this year (09), is also seen playing slapping game 'hot hands' with Wonder - and reveals the Motown legend is now a huge fan.
Jafargholi tells U.K. tabloid The Sun, "Stevie Wonder was really nice. I was in his dressing room for ages playing games and messing around.
"He taught me this game called hot hands. You put your hands out and have to slap the other person's hand before they move it away. And although he is blind he was so good at it. He kept winning.
"I was introduced to him and he could have just said hello, but he was so nice to me. He told me I had an amazing voice. It was amazing."
