Stevie Wonder Celebrates 74th Birthday with Jubilant Trip to Ghana (See Video)


Today is Steveland Morris’s 74th birthday. Congratulations!

The musical genius and humanitarian we know as Stevie Wonder celebrated by taking a jubilant trip to Ghana. He was greeted as a hero. See the video below.

Stevie should get the Presidential Medal of Freedom every year. His musical canon is stunning — from his early Motown days as a prodigy to his incredible run of Grammy winning hit albums in the 70s and 80s, all full of classics that will outlive all of us!

Stevie is also an incredibly devoted activist and humanitarian. He was instrumental in the creation of the Martin Luther King Jr holiday. His song, “Happy Birthday,” written for the holiday, remains not only a groundbreaker but a national anthem of sorts.

Happy Birthday, Stevie!
