Stevie Wonder's Disability

If you don't know already, Stevie Wonder is blind. But, unlike others, he didn't let that stop him. He still made it really far in life. As a matter of fact, he made it much farther than most people ever do, including those who don't have a disability. And, notice that he lives his life blind.

He has learned to play piano, harmonica, and others, too, but most of all, he has managed to be a parent to his daughter Aisha. He has also been married twice. He has toured all over the world solo, and has worked with artists such as the Rolling Stones and Paul McCartney. Did I mention that he has won many Grammies and other awards? For example, he has won an award from president Nixon and he also has a spot on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

For all of this he has accomplished while being blind, I can say that I give him a big thumbs up!
