Since the age of 12, when he scored his first #1 hit, “Fingertips,” as a child prodigy, Stevie Wonder has created a phenomenal life in music. From his pioneering Motown era in the ‘60s to his ambitious, socially-conscious music of the ‘70s to his chart-topping success in the ‘80s and beyond, Wonder has written one monumental song after another: “Superstition,” “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours,” “Isn’t She Lovely,” “Sir Duke,” “You Are the Sunshine of My Life,” “My Cherie Amour,” “Higher Ground,” “Don’t You Worry ‘Bout a Thing,” “For Once In My Life,” “Living for the City,” “I Just Called to Say I Love You,” “Master Blaster (Jammin’)” and so many more. He has recorded more than 30 US top ten hits, received 25 Grammy Awards and sold more than 100 million records worldwide. His talents as a singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist are legendary, inspiring music creators for decades. By combining those gifts with his mission as an activist, philanthropist and humanitarian, he has made a profound social impact on the lives of millions of people around the world. Don’t miss this opportunity to get unprecedented insight into the mind and spirit of a true musical genius. At this session, ASCAP President Paul Williams will present Wonder with the inaugural ASCAP Key of Life Award, honoring him for his incredible musical legacy. In the future, the award will be presented to songwriters and composers who best exemplify Wonder’s legacy through their commitment to the art form he has elevated through his talent, dedication and unparalleled heart.
