Trivia Tuesday

I have always loved the music of Stevie Wonder.


He was born in Saginaw, Michigan in 1950, but born with the name Steveland Hardaway Judkins. He was premature and put in an incubator.
What caused Stevie Wonder's blindness? Damage from being placed in an incubator.
The incubator contained too much oxygen which caused cataracts to grow behind each eye, leaving Stevie blind. He thought he was very lucky to have lived.

And I am so glad he lived.

In other totally different (and not important) news,

Other trivia (which may be important)...
