Happy Birthday to Stevie Wonder, who turns 72 today (May 13th)!!! 2021 saw Stevie Wonder' duet with Elton John on “Finish Line,” from Elton's latest album, The Lockdown Sessions. The video, which features new and archival footage of people of all creeds, races, and denominations celebrating the big moments in life, also includes vintage shots of Elton and Wonder from back in the 1970's.
Back in October 2020, Wonder released his first new music in 15 years. “Where Is Our Love Song” was a tune he began writing way back in 1968; and the second track — “Can't Put It In The Hands Of Fate” — featured Busta Rhymes and Rapsody alongside backing vocals from five of his nine children. Rolling Stone reported at the time, “Proceeds from the song’s sales will benefit Feeding America, which, Wonder says, has requested $1 billion in donations to help families in need around the country.” The tracks were issued under Wonder's own Republic Records, marking his first break from Motown in nearly 60 years.
In June 2020, Wonder posted a video on social media, titled “The Universe Is Watching” in which he spoke at length on race relations in the country and how America can move beyond what he believes is Donald Trump's overt race baiting and prejudice.
