The Stevie Wonder song heard over the final minutes of Thursday night’s series finale of Scandal was unfamiliar for a reason: he custom-wrote it for the ABC political soap – and even show creator and producer Shonda Rhimes didn’t know about until the last minute. Rhimes revealed how it came about during her appearance with Scandal star Kerry Washington on Thursday night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! Rhimes said that she’d been putting the finishing touches on the finale fewer than 12 hours prior to the broadcast. The reason: “We were so blessed that we got to get a special song written by Stevie Wonder,” Rhimes said, explaining that Wonder was “inspired by Scandal” to write the song, and only let Rhimes know about it at the last minute. Producers were working until literally hours before the finale’s scheduled broadcast to incorporate the song.
