Have you heard of the singer Stevie Wonder?  Did you know that he was born blind?  In spite of that, Stevie loved learning and he especially loved music.  He played and sang since he was a young boy.  He was signed to his first recording contract when he was just 13 years old.  Imagine having a best selling song at just 13 years old.  And Stevie hasn't slowed down any since then.  "Isn't he lovely, / this small blind boy, thinking of his fingertips? / Snapping those fingers before unseeing eyes."

                        Musicians -- Poetry.
