PREMIO PARA STEVIE WONDER

obama_286202t1La ceremonia de entrega del Gershwin Award fue en La Casa Blanca. El encargado en entregar el prestigioso galardón fue el 44 Presidente de los Estados Unidos de America, Barack Obama. Y el premiado fue el legendario cantante, compositor, productor y multiinstrumentista Stevie Wonder. A la entrega del citado premio también asistió Eric Holder, recientemente designado Fiscal General en el primer ejecutivo Presidencial . Barack Obama, en el momento de hacer entrega del galardón y en presencia de su mujer Michelle, destacó la labor musical de Stevie Wonder y la influencia que la misma ha tenido en la sociedad americana. La primera dama Michelle Obama reconoció haber crecido escuchando temas de Stevie Wonder junto a su abuelo. De hecho el matrimonio Obama eliguio como canción de boda el tema cantado por el intérprete y titulado “You And I“. El Presidente de Estados Unidos afirmó que los temas de Stevie Wonder formaban ya parte de la banda sonora de su juventud y que era un honor para él entregar este premio al cantante al que siempre había admirado. Por el contrario, Stevie Wonder estaba feliz de recibir de manos de Barack Obama este galardón. Este premio supone el punto álgido a la larga carrera musical de Stevie Wonder que se inició en el año 1.961. Stevie Wonder tiene en su poder un total de 22 Grammy Awards y es una de las figuras más importantes de la música popular americana del pasado siglo XX. En el año 1.996 se le concede el Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award en reconocimiento a su dilatada carrera musical y artística. Con el tema titulado “Happy Birthday” perteneciente a su trabajo discográfico publicado en el año 1.980 y titulado “Hotter Than July“, logra que el 15 de Enero, día en el que se conmemora el nacimiento de Martin Luther King, sea declarado festivo a nivel nacional. Desde que Stevie Wonder tuvo conocimiento de la presentación de la candidatura de Barack Obama a la presidencia del gobierno ha colaborado de forma activa en toda la campaña electoral estando presente en numerosos actos y eventos. Después de ser premiado, Stevie Wonder interpretó varios temas de su clásico repertorio.
