Tonight, let's sit back and jam with Stevie Wonder, creator of some of the best grooves ever. Mr. Wonder was born Stevland Hardaway Judkins, and at age 59 he's still performing quite a bit, recently appearing at the Michael Jackson memorial and the Obama inauguration celebration. Without further ado, here's his 70's hit "Superstition."

"Superstition" Live on Sesame Street, 1973

"Higher Ground" on Beatclub, 1973

"You Haven't Done Nothin'" on the Grammies, 1975

He won Album of the Year and various other awards for Fulfillingness' First Finale, which included the Number 1 hit "You Haven't Done Nothin'," a song about Nixon, featuring backing vocals by The Jackson Five.

"I Just Called to Say I Love You" on The Cosby Show, 1984, w/Phylicia Rashād

Man, Clair Huxtable can really sing!

"Living for the City" with Ray Charles, 1990's-ish

Bonus Clip: Stevie Wonder and Grover on Sesame Street

Stevie trades singing tips with Grover, then learns about loud and soft singing. Adorable and silly.
