Stevie Wonder urges Ohioans to vote early in surprise performance

 CLEVELAND —The final weekend of early voting is underway in this key Democratic stronghold in all-important Ohio — and that means Stevie Wonder.

In an unannounced event, Wonder performed for a small crowd of about 50 people a few blocks from the veritably besieged Cuyahoga County early voting site.

"I would like you to commit to me one thing," he said. "I do a song. You go vote. Can we do that?"

Wonder will also appear at a rally with President Obama in Cincinnati on Sunday.
