R&B icon Stevie Wonder is receiving the 2013 Service to America Leadership Award from the National Association of Broadcasters' Education Foundation (NABEF).
What's that and why? Hang on, we'll tell you.
The wonderful Wonder is receiving the award for his work as an activist, as a Messenger of Peace and for his dedication to helping people with disabilities and children and families in need. He is a tireless do-gooder, in addition to being one of the most talented R&B singers…EVER.
Blindness never stopped Wonder and never will.
Wonder will receive the honor at NABEF's Celebration of Service to America Gala on June 3.
The award recognizes individuals and organizations responsible for improving the lives of others through extraordinary public service.
NABEF President Marcellus Alexander said, "Stevie Wonder has touched millions of lives worldwide through his musical genius and through his tireless contributions as a humanitarian. It is for his extraordinary efforts on behalf of those in need that we proudly honor him with this prestigious award."
Amen to that.
