Showbiz legend Donny Osmond is celebrating an astounding 50 years of entertaining with the release of his 60th album, The Soundtrack of My Life, which finds Osmond paying homage to the artists who influenced him.

Today, Billboard has the exclusive premiere of one of those songs: Osmond's cover of Stevie Wonder's 1969 hit "My Cherie Amour" featuring the man himself.

No, this isn't a duet between the two. Instead of singing, Wonder brings his inimitable harmonica to Osmond's cover of his classic.

"The way Stevie Wonder plays the harmonica is iconic; his music has made a major impact in my life throughout most of my 50-years of entertaining," Osmond says. "So when I decided to create an album, which would highlight songs that have really influenced me the most, I knew I had to include 'My Cherie Amour.' In fact, it was the first record I ever purchased. When I started working on the song, I thought, 'It would be so cool if Stevie would be willing to play harmonica on my version.' He agreed to do it. It truly is an honor to have him on my 60th album."

Listen below. The Soundtrack of My Life, which comes out Jan. 13, is available for pre-order here.
