A 24 Hour DJ Set Celebrating Stevie Wonder’s 70th Birthday
Happy Birthday Stevie Wonder! He is one the greatest singers, musician, song writers in music history. His music is timeless and spans 5 decades.
In honor of Stevie Wonder‘s 70th birthday today (May 13), Questlove arranged a 24 hour tribute set titled “24 Hours of Stevie.” The set started at 12am midnight and other DJ’s will be joining the celebration such as Gilles Peterson and DJ Tara. Natasha Diggs, D-Nice and DJ Spinna will be DJ’ing later on today. The tribute can be viewed on the Instagram account, @swfamily24.
This is a treat for all music fans because we get listen to all the classics. Stevie Wonder recently performed a heartwarming tribute to Bill Withers, who passed away at 81 last month. During his Global Citizen‘s One World: Together at Home set, he briefly performed the late musician’s seminal “Lean On Me,” which was followed by a rousing rendition of his own Songs in The Key of Life opener, “Love’s in Need of Love Today.”
