'Understanding Is Very Important' — Stevie Wonder

Eden, KRLA Beat, 2 December 1967

"I STARTED OUT when I was about nine-and-a-half or ten years old, and my first 'engagement' was on my front porch! My first professional performance was at the Apollo Theatre in New York on the Motor Town Review. Marvin Gaye and Marv Johnson were on the show... and the Supremes — when they first started out with 'Let Me Go The Right Way'. And the Miracles were starring the show."
