Stevie Wonder becomes the center of attention wherever he goes, even if it’s just to drop his son off at dance rehearsal.
The iconic musician’s 13-year-old son, Mandla Morris, is one of the young competitors on the upcoming season of “Dancing With the Stars: Juniors,” and Wonder stopped by to show some love during one of the show’s first practice sessions.
We’re told everyone at the dance studio in West Hollywood went nuts when Stevie arrived, and he spent some time with fans in the parking lot taking photos before heading inside where the top-secret action was going down.
Now, we’re not accusing Stevie of trying to (smartly) juice the system and put a good word in for his son by having his famous dad show up and be a part of the program … but Stevie’s no fool and has got to know producer’s would love to lean on that father/son relationship throughout the competition.
As we reported, the kids are making some serious cash for doing the show. There’s a baseline of at least $50,000 for the young stars, and they have the possibility of earning over 6-figures if they make it to the final rounds.
It’s unclear how big of a role Stevie will play throughout the season, but one thing we do know is you shouldn’t ask Honey Boo Boo about it, because she’s got a million reasons to not give away any spoilers.
