About Stevie Wonder
Stevie Wonder, born as Stevland Hardaway Judkins, is an American musician that plays multiple instruments and also has a sensational voice.
Being a true genius, this artist, and his piano sheets couldn’t stay away from us.
Being born in Michigan in 1950 with five more brothers and sisters, he started playing musical instruments at a very early age, playing piano, drums, bass and harmonica. As a child he formed a duo with a friend, singing at parties or on the streets.
At the age of only 11, he was taken by Ronnie White to Motown, where he got signed immediately.
It was all due to his original composition, "Lonely Boy". Working with producer and song-writer Clarence Paul, they put together two albums, "Tribute to Uncle Ray" being his debut one, containing mainly covers of Ray Charles. "The Jazz Soul of Little Stevie", an instrumental album and then Motown decided to launch a single, "I Call It Pretty Music, But the Old People Call It the Blues".
It was released in 1962 and even though it wasn’t a great success, it didn’t make Motown give up on the little "Wonder". It’s fortunate they didn’t, because now we and the world has more great music to enjoy thanks to this great artist.
In 1963 another album got released, "Recorded Live: The 12 Year Old Genius", where a single, "Fingertips", became a big hit.
During the mid 60s he had a number of hits, such as "Uptight (Everything’s Alright)" or "Blowin’ in the Wind" and "With a Child’s Heart".
In 1968, another instrumental album got released, not having great success, titled "Eivets Rednow". But until 1970 he released more hits such as "I Was Made to Love Her" and "For Once in My Life", "Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours". We hope we can provide you with as many piano sheets as possible for these incredible songs.
In the seventies, Stevie released the album "Where I’m Coming From", working on it with his wife, a songwriter. Signing another record with Motown records, in 1972 he released another album, "Music of My Mind", an original, unique and fresh album at that time that got his fame to rise to new heights.
Towards the end of 1972, he released "Talking Book" with the number one single "Superstition", which, together with "You Are the Sunshine of My Life", won three Grammy’s.
The album "Innervisions" from ’73 featured "Higher Ground" and "Living For the City", both ranking top 10 on the pop charts.
His last relevant album was his best one and his most diverse, a double album, "Songs In the Key of Life", released in 1976. It debuted top on the Billboard charts and stayed there for over three months, with "I Wish" and "Sir Duke" becoming number 1 pop and R&B hits.
Winning a record 22 Grammy Awards and having more than thirty US top ten hits, he has been inducted in the "Rock and Roll" and "Songwriters" hall of fame and is even at the time a very influential pop artist, his ‘70s classical era being mentioned by many as inspirations.
