Stevland Hardaway Morris (born on May 13, 1950 in Saginaw, Michigan), known by his stage name Stevie Wonder, is a U.S. singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, and activist. Born as Stevland Hardaway Judkins, he lost his sight shortly after birth. When 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 name ever since.
