Greetings Family!  I am still on a high because last night I saw one of the most prolific artists of our time.  STEVIE WONDER!!!  This was on my bucket list and I am blessed to have seen him.  This was his Songs in the Key of Life tour and it was amazing!   The body of work in that double album can be compared to nothing else.  I still have the album in my collection. You have to look at the artist and the time that the songs were written to understand that he was able to capture the present and the future at the same time.  One of things that struck me in addition to his musical genius, were the lyrics of every song…which is part of the genius.  During the concert it was like I heard the words for the first time and saw through his words the world that Stevie wrote about.  More inspiring was that those words could have been written today in 2015 as Stevie said which is commentary on our world that exists today.  Stevie Wonder in addition to being an artist like no other is also an activist, poet, humanitarian and a comedian. If you have never heard this music or have not listened to it in a long time do yourself a favor and listen.  It will change you family.
