After a stellar inaugural year, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas rang in 2012 by hosting a New Year’s Eve bash headlined by legendary artist, songwriter, musician and producer Stevie Wonder on Saturday, Dec. 31, 2011. 

The evening began at 9:30 p.m. inside The Chelsea, the resorts indoor concert venue, with an electrifying performance by DJ Mia Moretti and violinist Caitlin Moe followed by a set from Mayer Hawthorne & The County.  At 11 p.m., Wonder took to the main stage and rocked the crowd with hits such as “Master Blaster”, “Overjoyed,” and “Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I’m Yours)” for over two-and-a-half hours, pausing momentarily to usher in 2012 with a celebratory countdown as the clock struck midnight. The crowd went wild later in the evening when Tyrese Gibson joined Wonder on stage to sing along for several songs, including “Superstition.”
