I'm having computer problems, so until I get mine updated, I'm borrowing another to post this link to an amazing performance by a young Stevie Wonder that you have to watch all the way through to get the full impact of a side of his genuis I never saw or heard before.

Incredible, Mike, thank you! I needed to be uplifted.

Below is one of my all time favorites of Wonder's; I remember hearing it on the radio in the days before my cousin Marianne died - and knowing it was the answer to my prayer - God & the Saints telling me she would be leaving, and to prepare myself.

Never Dreamed You'd Leave in Summer

"I never dreamed you'd leave in summer
I thought you would go then come back home
I thought the cold would leave by summer
But my quiet nights will be spent alone

You said there would be warm love in springtime
That is when you started to be cold
I never dreamed you'd leave in summer
But now I find myself all alone

You said then you'd be the life in autumn
Said you'd be the one to see the way
No, I never dreamed you'd leave in summer
But now I find my love has gone away

Why didn't you stay?"
