TURN it UP TUESDAYS: Stevie Wonder
HEY!!! I LOVE THIS MAN!!
Keeping with the spirit of the month of love, I decided to post a throwback. It is one of my favorite songs (if one can really choose) by my favorite artists, Mr. Stevie Wonder. Also in the spirit of Black History month, I would like to share some lil known facts about Stevie, because I'm sure we all know who he is already.
- Stevie has won 22 Grammys
- He also won an Academy Award, Lifetime Achievement award, and was inducted
into, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame
- He has recorded over 30 top ten hits
- He has 10 U.S. #1 hits
- Second African American to win an Academy Award for his hit "I Just Called to
Say I Love You"
Did you know.....? Stevie was born 6 weeks pre-mature, his blood vessels that support healthy sight, had not yet fully developed, attributing to his blind state. His legal name is Morris, which was changed after his mother left his father and moved herself and children to Detroit from Saginaw, Michigan. Stevie had his first hit at the tender age of 13. He is currently only 60 years old and still going strong.
