Old School Friday #41 "STEVIE WONDER"

Hi There Bloggers!!
You Know What today is... Old School Friday!
In case you are new around these parts and don't know what "Old School Friday" is, well it is grown folks MUSIC! Yes we post some music that comes from some time before 1999, (hopefully) to relive some memories, and to educate or just entertain each other.
Ms Grapevine and MarvalusOne have teamed up to create a meme titled Old School Friday and since I love my music I had to sign up to join! To join in the Old School Friday Fun go Here for guidelines.

Today's theme is dedicated to My Mother!

"Stevie Wonder"

This theme right here is for people who know what real musical genius is all about! Steveland Hardaway Judkins later named Steveland Hardaway Morris born in Saginaw, Michigan on May 13, 1950 was blind since infancy. He learned piano at age7 and mastered drums and harmonica by age 9 and was signed to Motown record label at the age of 12. This man is quite simply AMAZING! He is a genius because he is a musician, writer, singer and producer. He has released 35 U.S albums; has scored more than 30 Top Ten hits; 11 #1 Pop singles; won 19 Grammys and a Lifetime Achievement Award. He has also been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame! He was often introduces as the "8th Wonder of the World" hence the name Stevie Wonder!

My mother often tells me the story of how Stevie could have almost been my father, because after seeing him perform in concert she PROPOSED to Stevie backstage! That didn't quite work out, but the music is awesome none the less!
Please enjoy a little of the Wonderment that I grew up with!

Although My Cherie Amour and Ribbon in the Sky are wonderful classics, I Believe is a gem that doesn't get much attention. Nice choices.

Prof. PC 28 November, 2008 10:52

My Cherie Amour is good choice. I almost picked that one.

MsMarvalus 28 November, 2008 12:07
