Gurrumul's Wonderful Diamond Jubilee Concert In London

Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu standing behind Queen Elizabeth II.
 It was a surreal moment for me when I saw this news article yesterday - 
Gurrumul sings for Queen but marvels at Wonder
"Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu has performed for Queen Elizabeth II at her Diamond Jubilee concert in London but was even more impressed by meeting one of his heroes, fellow blind singer Stevie Wonder."
Stevie Wonder and Gurrumul
I wrote about Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu just after hearing him play before Bob Dylan came on at the Bryon Bay Bluesfest in 2011.
”But Dylan’s Not Dead” ”Oh...Isn’t He?”
Wiyathul * If You Love Music,You Must Have a Listen to This Song
The one-eyed men.
And as much as I love these two great singing talents, I couldn't help wondering if the one-eyed press were just using the story as their way of an in house joke - In the land of the blind the one-eyed man is king.
They are both cameras that record EVERYTHING!?!
...and the one-eyed lights. Is it the 2012 Olympics or 1984 Games?

I'm sure Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu was more pleased to meet Stevie Wonder than the Queen. You don't really 'meet' the Queen, it's more a case of being introduced. But being seen with the Queen won't have done Gurrumul's profile any harm.

The Telegraph has pulled the story before I could read it KU.So it must have had some credibility, whatever it was about.
