BIOGRAPHY:




TRIVIA:
  • Son of Lula Mae Hardaway.
  • In his acceptance speech for the Oscar for Best Song in 1984, Wonder dedicated his award to imprisoned civil rights leader 'Nelson Mandela' (qv). The South African government promptly banned Wonder's music from the country.
  • Has won 21 Grammy awards (a record for most Grammy awards)
  • Shortly after reaching his 21st birthday in the spring of 1971, he became the first Motown Recording artist to gain complete artistic control of his records.
  • 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?"
  • At the age of 17 he performed with The 'Jimi Hendrix' (qv) Experience playing drums at the BBC. (Jammin'/I was made to love her, BBC Sessions)
  • Became the very first blind recipient of an Academy Award when his composition "I Just Called to Say I Love You" won Best Original Song from _The Woman in Red (1984)_ (qv) soundtrack.
  • "Little Stevie" Wonder grew up to not very little at all, as he stands over 6' tall.
