In a world of likes and dislikes, you will hardly get a singer as unanimously appreciated as Stevie Wonder.

The sharp contrast between his blindness and the permanent smile on his face can only bring admiration. Add to that an unbelievable talent that most of us sighted people can only dream of and all you get is an immense respect.

And even if you believe that you do not really know his songs, just put in a playlist of his, you will end up surprised to recognize so many sounds. His influence in today’s music is colossal.

In these Black Lives Matter days, reviewing the career in numbers of the singer that made the final push to sign the Martin Luther King Jr. Day is the least we can do. Signed, sealed, delivered, it’s yours!
