Happy 62nd Birthday Stevie Wonder!!

Stevie Wonder was born on this day, back in 1950 as Stevland Hardaway Judkins. He is best known for his stage name Stevie Wonder. Although being blind since shortly after birth, he is a successful Singer-Songwriter, Multi-Instrumentalist and Record Producer.  Among Wonder’s best known works are singles such as “Superstition”, “Sir Duke”, “I Wish” and “I Just Called to Say I Love You”.

Stevie Wonder was born in Saginaw, Michigan, in 1950, the third of six children to Calvin Judkins and Lula Mae Hardaway. Owing to his being born six weeks premature, the blood vessels at the back of his eyes had not yet reached the front and their aborted growth caused the retinas to detach. When Stevie Wonder was four, his mother left his father and moved herself and her children to Detroit. She changed her name back to Lula Hardaway and later changed her son’s surname to Morris, partly because of relatives. Morris has remained Stevie Wonder’s legal surname ever since. He began playing instruments at an early age, including piano, harmonica, drums and bass. During childhood he was active in his church choir.

With Stevie opening all his birthday presents today, I wonder will anyone be giving him personalised number plates? Personalised number plates are becoming increasingly popular as more and more people are looking to give unique personalised gifts. The perfect registration for Stevie would be ST53 WON.

Happy Birthday Stevie!!
