(September 30, 2021) It has been more than three decades since the great Stevie Wonder teamed with Elton John, Dionne Warwick and Gladys Knight for the #1 hit, "That's What Friends Are For." A lot of water has flowed in the river since then, but Wonder and John have again teamed as part of Elton's upcoming The Lockdown Series collection of collaborations.

The new single, "Finish Line," features The Sunday Service Choir and tells the relatable story of pain, challenges and resilience. And it is fun hearing these two musical legends, both in their 70s, handle it together. As Elton John posted on his Facebook page, "See you at the finish line, Stevie Wonder."

It is a big 'ol pop ballad that lets the choir go full throat, while the two stars trade off vocals and Stevie gives some harmonica to top it off. Check out "Finish Line" and welcome the historic combination of Stevie Wonder and Elton John to SoulTracks.
