With the world of R&B still suffering from the tragic deaths of so many legends recently including Little Richard, Andre Harrell, Betty Wright, Bill Withers and others, its best we give our flowers to those that are still with us and show our appreciation for them while they are here.

On May 13, 1950 in Saginaw Michigan, the world was blessed with the birth of Steveland Hardaway Judkins, the third of six children. Before he could even become a teenager, Stevie Wonder would sign to Motown Records and become a global icon.

Over 100 million records sold, 25 Grammys, an Academy Award, countless "Lifetime Achievement Awards" and one of the most successful singers and songwriters ever, today we celebrate Stevie Wonder on his 70th birthday. Share your favorite Stevie Wonder with us in the comments or on our Facebook page!
