From the AFP's account of the Obama-Hu dinner:

A People's Liberation Army military band played a selection of Chinese and American music including Wonder's "I Just Called To Say I Love You" and "We Are The World", penned by the late pop icon Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie.

Obama's a Stevie Wonder fan so it was a nice gesture, but why that song?

I'd like to think that, as he listened, this scene from 'High Fidelity' (contains strong language) flashed through the president's mind.
