Wonder tells Britain's The Guardian, "It's been a heartbreak. Obviously I knew Michael. I knew Whitney, too, and I understand Amy came to my concert in England a couple of years ago. I was thinking about us doing a duet -- an old Marvin [Gaye] and Mary Wells song called 'Once Upon a Time.' It would have been amazing."
