James Corden has driven the likes of Rod Stewart, Mariah Carey and Justin Bieber around in his car for The Late Late Show in recent months, and while his talented guests have made the presenter laugh, none of them managed to make him cry.

But when Stevie Wonder joined Corden in his car for the show's Carpool Karaoke feature, he managed to reduce the British presenter to tears.

Corden said his wife Julia may not believe that he was in the car with Wonder, and asked the Superstition singer if they could call her to prove it while they drove around the streets of LA.


When the pair phoned Corden's wife, Wonder serenaded her with the words, "I just called to say James loves you.”

Wonder only sang a few lines of the hit down the phone, but it was enough to see the presenter become overcome with emotion and start rubbing his eyes.

“Oh my God you have just won me so many brownie points with my wife," Corden tells Wonder as he hangs up the phone.

The pair sang along to a host of Wonder’s hits as they drove to Corden's work, giving the legendary singer the chance to show off his accomplished British accent.
