Stevie Wonder

Stevie Wonder (singer and songwriter; born May 13, 1950, in Saginaw, Michigan) Stevie Wonder has been an integral part of the world of music for the past four decades, as a singer, songwriter, musician and producer. The boy wonder burst onto the music scene when he was just ten years old, and his mission ever since has been to bring joy into people's lives. "He has been pop music's unquenchable optimist for nearly a generation," said The New York Times in 1986. "His skills at writing sinuous melodies and gently uplifting harmonies, and his cheerful yet determined eclecticism - from funk to ballads, bossa nova to quasi-showtunes - have made Mr. Wonder a one-man Tin Pan Alley through two decades of rock.
