Stevie Wonder

Singer/Songwriter Blind at birth, Stevland "Stevie Wonder" Morris, was dubbed "a wonder" because he was a musical prodigy, signed to Motown Records by the age of 12.  Little Stevie Wonder scored a big hit by the time he was 13, with the 1963 tune, "Fingertips (Pt. 2)."  As an adult, his 1972 breakthrough album, Talking Book, paved the way for his classic collections, including Innervisions (1973) and his fanciful 1976 album, Songs in the Key of Live.  He has received 22 Grammy Awards, more than any other male solo artist.
