HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -
More than a year after an expensive scam for the University of Hawaii involving a fake Stevie Wonder concert, the famed singer/songwriter dazzled a private concert in Waikiki.
The concert was not advertised because it was only for investors and employees of the Oracle Corporation, co-founded by billionaire Larry Ellison, who also owns the island of Lanai.
The open-air event was held at Fort DeRussy's Kuroda Field, which was surrounded by a tall chain link fence draped in black to try to keep curious eyes out. That didn't stop dozens of fans from lining the area to hear Wonder perform many of his hits.
"We heard some soulful funk going on over here and decided to investigate," said Lisa Schwarberg of Santa Barbara, CA, who managed to get a snapshot of the performance. "There he was on stage playing the keyboards, so I took a shot and seems like it's in focus. I really see him clearly."
UH lost $200,000 in what became called the "Wonder Blunder," involving a concert promoter who had no connection with Stevie Wonder.
