Stevie Wonder Honoured In Washington Ahead Of Obama Concert

February 24, 2009
Stevie Wonder Honoured In Washington Ahead Of Obama ConcertStevie Wonder spoke at the Library of Congress in Washington last night (February 23rd) as he prepares to receive the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song.

Wonder, who was born blind, also performed a new composition for the first time during his short appearance.

President Barack Obama will present Wonder with the Gershwin Prize for his song 'Sketches Of A Life' at a ceremony at the White House later this week.

Wonder will become only the second person to receive the honour after Paul Simon collected the prize in 2007.

The musician, who is self-taught on piano and various other instruments, first appeared in front of US television audiences at the age of 12.
