Introduced to the world at the age of 12 as “Little Stevie Wonder,” superstar Stevie Wonder may have dropped the “Little” since then, but certainly not his unique gift for a catchy melody and his expert fusion of soul, funk and R&B styles. Signed to Motown Records by Berry Gordy in 1963, “Little Stevie” rocketed to stardom with hits that included My Cherie Amour and Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I’m Yours), producing nine #1 records and amassing a staggering 22 Grammy Awards over the course of four decades. In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Motown Records, GREAT PERFORMANCES presents Wonder in a tour-de-force concert performance at London’s O2 Arena. Watch a preview online.
