    Not too many musicians get praise from Stevie Wonder, but if you do, that's a major connection! According to, MAJOR.'s "Why I Love You" was called "the wedding song of the year" by Stevie. MAJOR. must be doing something right to be noticed and acknowledge by the legendary Stevie Wonder!

  5. Best Collaboration

    Last November, Patti LaBelle sang her own rendition of MAJOR.'s "Why I Love You" while giving praise to the song. This isn't technically a collaboration, but if Queen Patti LaBelle covers your song, that speaks volumes!
