With 2016 being the year of shedding light to injustices, be it political, social, or racial, Stevie Wonder decided to use his influence to shed light on issues that affect the blind.
While presenting the award for Song of the Year with the Grammy award winning a cappella group Pentatonix, Stevie asked the group if they could read the winner’s name as it was printed on the envelope.
They couldn’t because it was written in Braille!
“You can’t read Braille. Na na na na naaaa!” Stevie teased before going into the importance of making sure that those with disabilities were accommodated.
“We need to make every single thing accessible to every single person with a disability.”
The moment was clearly one that was magical to Wonder, who has been blind since he was an infant. It also was a very major step on showing the importance of accessibility and inclusion for those with disabilities.
Take a look at the moment below.
