Great Performances' Stevie Wonder: Live at Last
Wed, 06/03/2009 - 8:00pm
To mark the 50th anniversary of Motown Records, Great Performances "Stevie Wonder: Live at Last," airing Wednesday, June 3 at 8 p.m. on WXXI-TV 21 (cable 11) and WXXI-HD (DT21.1/cable 1011), captures Grammy Award-winning artist Stevie Wonder in his first concert performance recorded for television. The special telecast features the Motown master performing such chart-topping hits as “Isn’t She Lovely,” “My Cherie Amour,” and “Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I’m Yours).”
Wonder rocketed to stardom at age 12 when he was signed to Motown Records as “Little Stevie Wonder.” Over nearly four decades, Wonder has reinvigorated the music scene with his unique sound, produced nine #1 records, and won a total of 22 Grammy Awards — and there’s no end in sight for the successful superstar.
In October 2008, he returned to Europe — after more than a decade — to perform to a packed house at London’s O2 Arena. Wonder, who pulls out all the hits, keeps the crowd on its feet and doesn’t miss a beat during this tour-de-force concert performance.
