Stevie Wonder performed a special tribute to Dick Clark at Sunday’s live ceremony of the 2012 American Music Awards.The tribute was  introduced by Ryan Seacrest.

“He was a mentor, friend and a wonderful advocate for popular music,” Seacrest said of Clark in a statement. “It’s only fitting that one of music’s legends, Stevie Wonder, will play at Sunday’s tribute.”

Stevie performed a medley of hit songs including “My Cherie Amour,” “You Are The Sunshine Of My Life” and “Sir Duke.” His performance was sweet and appropriate as pictures of Dick emerged on a screen behind him. Stevie also spoke fondly of his late friend Dick, as he said he will “remember his friendship and his kindness.”

This year marked the 40th Anniversary of the American Music Awards. Clark formed the American Music Awards back in 1973 as a means of competing with the Grammys.
