Stevie Wonder, 67, has married his third wife, 42-year-old Tomeeka Bracy.

The "Isn't She Lovely" singer took the stage at his wedding ceremony to perform "Try A Little Tenderness" for his bride, according to the Daily Mail.

Other entertainers like Usher, John Legend and Pharrell Williams performed at the ceremony as well.

"It was a very lavish, romantic and star-studded affair," a source told The Sun. "Stevie's musical pals each got up on stage to take turns serenading the couple, much to the delight of the other guests. Then Stevie got up to sing for his new bride."

Stevie's best man and Tomeeka's bridesmaids were each selected from the singers' nine children, which he had by five different women -- two of which he has with his new wife.

The marriage comes after Stevie and Tomeeka dated for five years.

Prior to the wedding, a source said: "It is going to be a huge, incredibly fun wedding and Stevie is flying out all his nearest and dearest," the Daily Mail noted.

"The guest list is pretty spectacular, and there will be a couple of surprise performances on the night," the source added, at the time. "There will be a huge party afterwards as well, and the whole day will be about love, laughter and family; Stevie is very close to his, and they will all have a role to play on the big day."

While the average wedding party doesn't always feature a ton of family members, Stevie wouldn't have wanted it any other way, according to a source.

"Aisha [his oldest] enjoys her dad quite a bit, they get together and eat and joke," the source said, according to the Daily Mail. "He's been helping [his son] Mumtaz with some of Mumtaz's music and he always talks about how talented his son is."

"He knows that being a father is a full-time job and now that he's a little older, he feels like he's up to the task and he doesn't want to let any of them down," the source added.

Stevie's first marriage to the late Motown singer-songwriter Syreeta Wright lasted two years, ending in 1972, according to The Sun.

He married his second wife, fashion designer Kai Millard, in 2001. The two remained married until August 2012, even though they separated in October 2009.
