Mum’s been the word on the ‘extra famous guest’ scheduled to make an appearance alongside Paul Simon and Sting at next week’s concert for the Duke Ellington School for the Arts. The folks behind the March 12th fundraiser call him “shhhhh” but his fans know him as Stevie Wonder–at least that’s what we’ve been hearing. The “Songs in the Key of Life” crooner headlined the school’s 2010 concert.

The day before their “Paul Simon and Sting: On Stage Together” tour stop at the Verizon Center, the folkster and the rock star will play to patrons of D.C.’s version of “Fame” with tickets starting at $250 and marching up to $1,000 for the VIP spots that promise a pre-show reception featuring an appearance by Sting.
