Stevie Wonder & Pentatonix Honor Earth, Wind & Fire With An A Cappella Version Of That's The Way Of The World! WATCH HERE!

Filed under: Music MinuteGrammysEd SheeranPentatonix

Instruments are so overrated…

Just ask Stevie Wonder and Pentatonix!

At the 2016 Grammys, the legendary singer and the group presented the award for Song Of The Year — which eventually went to Ed Sheeran and Amy Wadge for Thinking Out Loud!

However, before they did so, they paid tribute to Maurice White — late band member of Earth, Wind & Fire — by performing an a cappella version of their classic That's The Way Of The World!

Both acts beautifully blended their melodies; it was quite the treat for your ears!

Who knows? This performance might lead to a future collaboration!

To hear the awesomeness, ch-ch-check it out (above)!

The legendary musician was diagnosed with Parkinson's in 1992, and had to stop touring with his band in 1994 because of complications.

Along with his brother and bandmate Verdine White, the group spawned several hits including Shining Star, September, Boogie Wonderland, and After the Love has Gone.

In 2010, they were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. That same year, White was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Our thoughts and prayers go to his family during this difficult time.
