Biography

Stevie Wonder (born May 13, 1950 Saginaw, MI) is a singer, songwriter, producer, musician, humanitarian and social activist. Although his name at birth was Stevland Judkins, he later changed his name to Stevland Morris. His mother’s biography states that his surname was legally changed to Morris, “an old family name”, in 1961 when he signed with Motown. Wonder has recorded more than 30 Top 10 hits, won two dozen Grammys, also one for lifetime achievement, and been inducted into both the Rock and Roll and Songwriters halls of fame.

Blind from infancy, Wonder has become one of the most successful and well-known artists on the Motown label, with nine U.S. #1 hits to his name and album sales totaling more than 70 million units. He has recorded several critically acclaimed albums and hit singles, and writes and produces songs for many of his labelmates and outside artists as well. A multi-instrumentalist, Wonder plays the drums, guitar, synthesizers, congas, and most famously the piano, harmonica and keyboards.

Born Stevland Morris in Saginaw, Michigan in 1950, Wonder enters his fifth decade as one of the most prolific artists in music history, delivering 35 U.S. albums - 28 major studio releases - with album sales totaling more than 72 million units. The singer/songwriter has scored more than 30 Top Ten Hits, 11 #1 Pop singles, winning 19 Grammys (and a Lifetime Achievement Grammy in ‘96) and a host of other awards, including, most recently, Billboard’s 2004 Century Award.
