Stevie Wonder Proves During Grammy Presentation That Inclusiveness Is Needed Everywhere

Stevie Wonder’s touching tribute to Maurice White during Monday night’s Grammy Awards wasn’t the only appearance he made during the show. Wonder was tasked with presenting the award for Song of the Year, and he used the opportunity to drive home a point about inclusiveness.

As Wonder opened the envelope to call out the winner, he laughingly flashed the envelope in the faces of the other presenters.


“You all can’t read this, huh?” Wonder joked.

And nope, they couldn’t read it because the winner’s name was written in braille.

“I just want to say, before saying the winner, that we need to make every single thing accessible to every single person with a disability,” Wonder stated.

To a round of applause, Wonder then announced that Ed Sheeran had won for his song “Thinking Out Loud.”


Maybe Wonder can teach Steve Harvey a thing or two about reading the correct winner.
