BIOGRAPHY:




TRIVIA:
  • He was voted the 15th Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Artist of all time by Rolling Stone.
  • Oddly enough, two other vocalists introduced his 1973 smash hit "You Are the Sunshine of My Life" (from album "Talking Book") before Wonder actually sang any lyrics. Respectively, these singers were 'James Gilstrap' (qv) and 'Lani Groves' (qv).
  • His first #1 hit was the half-improvised "Fingertips - Part 2", recorded live in concert (The first live pop single to ever reach #1). It topped the Pop Music and R&B charts in 1963 when Stevie Wonder was only 12. You can the hear the musicians struggling to keep up with the young vocalist and harmonica player as he improvises rhythm and blues riffs, and at one point in the recording a musician is heard shouting "What key? What key?"
  • He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Recording at 7050 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California.
  • Joined friends 'Dionne Warwick' (qv), 'Gladys Knight' (qv) and 'Elton John' (qv) on the 1986 chart-topper "That's What Friends Are For", the proceeds of which were donated to AIDS research. Also played harmonica on the recording.
  • Awarded the Polar Music Prize, the Royal Swedish Academy of Music Award, in 1999.
  • Father of 'Aisha Morris' (qv), and 'Keita Morris' (qv).
  • At age 49 he was youngest-ever recipient in the 22-year history of Kennedy Center Honors given annually for lifetime contribution to arts and culture, presented by President 'Bill Clinton (I)' (qv) in Wash DC, Dec. 5, 1999.
