Stevie Wonder: 'President Obama, Will You Let Me Go to North Korea?'
With Dennis Rodman receiving worldwide attention for his bizarre trip to North Korea, singer-songwriter Stevie Wonder apparently wants in on the act. More specifically, he wants President Obama to okay a trip for him to visit Kim Jong Un, presumably to serenade him into peace. “Listen, we could not be here without love,” Wonder told reporters at the Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday. “I wish I could say to the president at this very moment, ‘President Obama, will you let me go to North Korea to talk to the leader?’ Because he must not know the people that are helpless, that’ll be killed, if there were war. It’s emotional to me.”
It’s emotional to President Obama, too. That’s probably why Obama has delayed an intercontinental ballistic missile test in order to avoid conflict with the North Korean dictator.
