Somewhat randomly, I was lucky enough to be in the audience of "Songs in the Key of Life" a tribute to Stevie Wonder that was taped last week. You guys. It was amazing. And, I'm telling you about it, because it airs TONIGHT on CBS (that's Monday the 15th) and you really should watch it. If you want a second opinion, here's what Rolling Stone had to say.
I was blown away the amazing range of performances: Tony Bennett, Beyonce, Ed Sheeran, Lady Gaga, Jill Scott, India.Arie, Janelle Monet, John Legend, Pharrell, etc. but above all else, I was blown away by Stevie Wonder as a person, and the message of love he conveys through is songs. Whether it's "Isn't She Lovely" which he wrote for his daughter when she was born or "Happy Birthday" which was actually a very upbeat protest song, calling for a national holiday to honor Martin Luther King, Jr.. Did you know that Stevie Wonder was integral in making that happen?
Anyway, things for you to think about this Monday morning. Listen to some Stevie Wonder and start your week out with a smile...
