President Obama signed legislation on Friday that aims to make technology easier to use for the disabled – and in doing so, he noted that the blind musician Stevie Wonder was there to take part in the occasion.

“I happened to be listening to him this morning when I woke up,” Obama said before signing the 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010. “He’s what I work out to. He’s what I sweet talk Michelle to. Mr. Stevie Wonder’s in the house.”

As he and supporters of the bill laughed and clapped, Obama remarked, “I was doing a little rendition of some of his music to him, and he was kind enough not to laugh.”
