Motown Legend Stevie Wonder Marries Prince George’s County Woman

Iconic Motown singer Stevie Wonder has tied the knot for the third time.
Tomeeka Robyn Bracy, 42, who hails from Oxon Hill, Maryland, married Wonder, 67, last weekend at the Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles.
Background vocalist Marqueta Pippens shared photos and videos from the stunning wedding on her Instagram account on Monday, but has since made her account private, according to People Magazine.
“Had a ball and was honored to be a part of Stevie Wonder’s wedding,” she captioned a photo collage. “Everything was so beautiful not to mention the hundreds of butterflies that were released from a box during the ceremony.”
In one photo, Wonder is seen sharing a dance with his daughter and new bride, who wore a head piece and form-fitting white gown for the big day.
The reception appeared to be elaborately decorated with various flower arrangements and string lights, People reported.
Pippens also shared a video of Babyface singing his hit “Whip Appeal” at the reception. Guests were seen grooving and clapping along to his performance.
Other reports said John Legend performed Wonder’s hit, “Overjoyed,” and Pharrell Williams and Usher also performed. The 25-time Grammy winner, who has two children with Bracy and nine overall, also took the stage and serenaded his new wife.
He also paid tribute to his late mother, according to reports.
In December 2014, Wonder welcomed his ninth child, and second child with Bracy, a baby girl named Nia.
The 25-time Grammy winner also has seven children from previous relationships: Aisha, 42, Mumtaz, 34, Kwame, 28, Kailand, Sophia, Keita and Mandla, 12.
Wonder was married previously to Syreeta Wright from 1970 to 1972, and Kai Millard from 2001 to 2012.
