Stevie Wonder Interview 1977: He explains how he sees colors and people

Post By RelatedRelated Post

In this classic interview in 1977, Stevie Wonder talks about what it’s like to be one of the most “influential rockstars of the decade.”  But it turns out that he was more than just a decade.  Nearly 40 years later, Stevie is still on top of his game, selling out shows all across the globe and wowing audiences everywhere.

There is no voice like Stevie, and since he was a child, he has always had a way of performance that was simply mesmerizing.

Wonder also talks about where he got the name “Stevie Wonder” from.  His real name is actually Stevland Hardaway Judkins.  He was signed with Motown in 1961 at the age of 11.  He was first called “Little Stevie Wonder,” but eventually had to be called just Stevie Wonder. 

He says that at first, Berry Gordy used to tell him that when he met a disc jockey, he should give the person a hug and say “hi.”  He then realized at the age of 14 that he was getting a little too tall for that gesture, and it was no longer cute.

Stevie was born blind after being a premature child.  His mother left his father when he was four and moved to Detroit. That’s when they started to discover his amazing talents.  It just so happened that Motown Records was growing in prominence at the time, leading to him being discovered.

The rest is history and he is now one of the most iconic performers of all time.


Stevie says that his ability, responsibility and pleasure to influence so many young people.  He visited high schools unannounced on a regular basis, just to thank his fans.  He says that as an artist, he realizes that it’s important for him to set a good example and influence young people in a positive way.

Watch the interview below and tell us what you think about Stevie and what he represents.  What does Stevie mean to you?
