Fingertips Signed Sealed Delivered I'M Yours

career life success chances
dicing with future destiny
where lay you realistic odds

born in abject despised poverty?
found patronage possibilities?
born with rich adoring parents?

be a blind black Stevie Wonder
Stevland Hardaway Judkins
Stevland Hardaway Morris

name change stage name Stevie Wonder
destined American singer-songwriter
multi-instrumentalist record producer

blind since briefly after birth signed
with Tamla label Motown Records
at age eleven ticket to miracle money

blind talent develops note hearing visionary
developed interactive sense sung harmony
extended chords utilizing extensions many

chords like 9ths,11ths,13ths, b5s, spices
renowned difficult to sing wonder compositions
melodies slice abrupt unpredictable changes

mystic music ancient cultures melismatic techniques
induce hypnotic trance in rapped attuned listeners
early mystical initiation rites morph into worship jazz

hard times no chance love talent can overcome showbiz
