Stevie Wonder is an American music icon known for his musical genius, constant fresh optimism, and strength of character. Blind nearly since birth, Stevie's heightened sense of sound gave him a fantastic knack for music. Stevie, born Stevland Hardaway Judkins, is a multi-instrumentalist. Stevie Wonder plays piano, synthesizer, harmonica, congas, drums, bongos, organ, melodica, and clarinet. During his early career, Stevie Wonder was best known for his harmonica performances, but as he evolved as a keyboard player, it became his specialty.

After moving to Detroit as a young child, Stevie sang in the church choir and quickly learned to play the piano, drums, and harmonica before he was nine years old. When he was eleven, Ronnie White of the Miracles arranged a meeting for Stevie with a Motown executive. The label immediately signed Stevie, dubbing him Little Stevie Wonder.

In 1962, Stevie released two albums: a tribute to his hero Ray Charles (Tribute to Uncle Ray) and The Jazz Soul of Little Stevie. Stevie's third album, The 12 Year Old Genius, which features an extended harmonica instrumental, sold very well. During puberty, while his voice was changing, Stevie studied piano at the Michigan School for the Blind. Stevie's return to recording, the 1964 Uptight, featured grooving Motown. Stevie started writing more and more of his own music and eventually produced several albums as well. He also wrote music for other artists, including the Spinners and the Miracles.

After his twenty-first birthday, his contract with Motown expired, and Stevie took his music into his own hands. Stevie wrote and produced the synthesizer and keyboard dominated Where I'm Coming From. Then Stevie built his own recording studio and enrolled in music theory courses at the University of Southern California.

The first release from his studio, 1972's Music of My Mind, signaled his arrival as a major talent with boundary-pushing vision. Stevie increased his exposure by touring with The Rolling Stones. Stevie recorded several albums throughout the 1970s and won multiple Grammy Awards.

As Stevie grew more comfortable with his music, he injected political messages into his lyrics (like the Richard Nixon criticism 'You Haven't Done Nothin'). However, his music always maintained an upbeat, optimistic tone. Stevie's seminal work, Songs in the Key of Life, was released in 1976 and is a vibrantly brilliant picture painted by music.

Stevie often worked with other artists when he wasnít in the throes of his solo work. In the 1980s, Stevie worked with Paul McCartney and Gene Wilder. In 1991, Stevie created the soundtrack for Spike Lee's Jungle Fever, and in 1995 rapper Coolio reinvented Stevie's 'Pastime Paradise' as 'Gangsta's Paradise.' The following year, Stevie recorded 'How Come, How Long' with Babyface.

In 2005, Stevieís solo album, A Time to Love, featured astonishing guests like Doug E. Fresh, Bonnie Raitt, Sir Paul McCartney, Kim Burrell, Prince, Kirk Franklin, and India.Arie.

Stevie's career is highlighted by singing credits, songwriting credits, and keyboard performances. However, Stevie frequently played the drums on his solo albums, such as The Jazz Soul of Little Stevie Wonder, Innervisions, Original Musiquarium I, Woman in Red, In Square Circle, At the Close of a Century, and Time to Love.

Stevie has also been known to perform drums to accompany other artists such as Syreeta, Minnie Riperton, Ronnie Foster, Jermaine Jackson, Jimi Hendrix, Paul McCartney, and Dionne Warwick.
