The official after-party for the Grammy Awards was a tribute concert for Stevie Wonder.

Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Pharrell and Annie Lennox were part of the all-star acts who paid tribute to the piano-playing icon at a concert Tuesday night in Los Angeles, just days after the Grammys aired.

Beyonce kicked off the taped event presented by the Recording Academy by walking up an isle of the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live and singing "Fingertips." Ed Sheeran joined the diva on "Master Blaster (Jammin')" and Gary Clark Jr. jumped in on "Higher Ground."

The night was full of collaborative highlights: A trio of India.Arie, Janelle Monae and Jill Scott shined like a seasoned girl group on "As"; Pharrell and OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder stretched their voices as high as possible; Babyface and Ariana Grande were soft on "Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours"; and Wonder's daughter, Aisha, sang the song written about her - "Isn't She Lovely" - with R&B singer Ne-Yo.

"I love you, Daddy," Aisha said, now standing next to her father who sat in the front row.

The rest of the night played like a love letter to Wonder.

Gaga said she remembered putting in her first CD into the CD player - a Wonder disc.

"You truly are the reason that I'm here today. Thank you so much," said 28-year-old Gaga, who earned a standing ovation with her rendition of "I Wish."
