Happy Birthday to You... Happy Birthday!

Stevie Wonder's miraculous music is still inspiring and exciting ears, minds, souls and bodies more than five decades after he first hit the scene as a Motown child prodigy. One measure of a true icon is their influence and impact on others through the years; and by that standard, few can match Stevie. On Stevie's 65th birthday, BET.com takes a look at music stars who've been influenced by Stevie, whether by collaborating with him directly, sampling his music or merely taking obvious inspiration from him. — Alex GaleDominique Zonyeé (@DominiqueZonyee) and Michael Harris (@IceBlueVA)
