Happy 67th to Stevie Wonder
I first saw him in a free concert venue at the Pacific National Exhibition here in Vancouver in 1962. The marquee called him Little Steven Wonder. We thought he wasn't really blind because he came so close to the edge of the stage without falling off, so we figured he had to be able to see and his blindness was just some kind of bizarre marketing scam.
We were wrong about his vision, but we were sure right about his ability to belt out some R&B. He had the kind of talent that made everyone in hearing range smile and bob to the beat. And he was already very, very cool.
