Stevie Wonder

My love for Stevie Wonder and his music began when I was a boy.

I once dressed up as a young 1960s Stevie Wonder for Halloween. 

The only thing missing from my costume was a harmonica which Mommy Dearest got for me. 

Like most Motown singles I saw as a child, Stevie Wonder’s name was on many. 

His Innervisions album is one of my Desert Island albums. 

It would take me almost 30 years to have an even deeper connection with the album. 

Songs In The Key of Life is easily the album I own the most copies of because it deserves to be owned in as pristine condition as possible.  I was fortunate to have come across numerous copies over the years.  

Had it not been for InnervisionsSongs In The Key of Life would have the secure spot on my Desert Island albums list.  What Innervisions did was make me realize how special Stevie Wonder and his music are.  

I’ve always been in awe of Stevie Wonder and most likely always will.

Stevie Wonder's Songs In The Key of Life Tour reaches Montreal on September 30, 2015.
