@allmusic : Nearly everything he recorded bore the stamp of his sunny, joyous positivity; even when he addressed serious racial, social, and spiritual issues (which he did quite often in his prime), or sang about heartbreak and romantic uncertainty, an underlying sense of optimism and hope always seemed to emerge.
@last.fm : In 2008, Billboard magazine named Wonder as 5th in their list of the Hot 100 All-Time Top Artists. Wonder is also noted for his work as an activist for political causes. In 2009, Wonder was named a United Nations Messenger of Peace.
