When the photo was buzzed about online, netizens reacted with comments such as ‘I thought he had been wearing sunglasses since birth’, ‘He is more handsome than I thought’, ‘I’ve never seen him without sunglasses before! and have shown a wide range of reactions.
Stevie Wonder was born prematurely as a newborn, and due to excessive oxygen in the incubator, he developed a disease* called retinopathy of prematurity, which left him blind soon after birth. However, he is not totally blind.
*A disease in which retinal blood vessels grow abnormally in the eyeballs of newborns born prematurely.
Stevie played piano, harmonica and bass from an early age and was signed to Motown’s Tamla label at the age of 11. He has had more than 30 US Top 10 hits and has won 22 Grammy Awards.
