Blind since shortly after his birth, Wonder was a child prodigy known as Little Stevie Wonder leading him to sign with Motown’s Tamla label at the age of 11. In 1963, the single “Fingertips” was a number-one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 when Wonder was aged 13, making him the youngest artist ever to top the chart. Wonder started his “classic period” with Music of My Mind and Talking Book (both 1972), the latter of which featured the number-one hit “Superstition”. It is one of the most distinctive and famous examples of the sound of the Hohner Clavinet keyboard. Wonder’s critical success was at its peak in the 1970s, with Innervisions (1973), Fulfillingness’ First Finale (1974) and Songs in the Key of Life (1976) all winning the Grammy Award for Album of the Year. It made him the tied record holder, with Frank Sinatra, for the most Album of the Year wins with three. Wonder is also the only artist to have won the award with three consecutive album releases. Wonder made use of the early music sampler Computer Music Melodian, which composed the soundtrack album Stevie Wonder’s Journey Through “The Secret Life of Plants” (1979). It was also his first digital recording, and one of the earliest popular albums to use the technology, which Wonder used for all subsequent recordings.
