The great Stevie Wonder is turning 70!
It’s hard to even remember music without Stevie Wonder, but 70 years ago Stevland Morris was born on May 13, 1950 in Saginaw, Michigan. Going blind as an infant, he changed the landscape in music for generations.
“I want my music to encourage people to understand that what the world needs is positivity, and that isn’t something that happens by happenstance,” Wonder told People magazine in 2005. “It is something that you have to commit yourself to every day by the way you treat your fellow man.”
“Happy birthday to ya, Stevie!”
