Lionel Richie Jokes That Stevie Wonder Isn’t Really Blind: I’ve Been Spending My Whole Life With Him Thinking He Can See!
Iconic singer Lionel Richie is finally addressing the elephant in the room that music lovers have speculated for years: is Stevie Wonder really blind? While on “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” Lionel Richie hilariously told a story about how Stevie Wonder tested his belief. Lionel said:
“I’m going to tell you something. I’ve been spending my whole life with him thinking he can see. I know he can see. Listen [to] the story I tell that’s the funniest. I went to his house. He says, ‘Wanna hear a new song? I’ve got it in the car. C’mon, go with me. You sit on the passenger side, I’ll sit on the driver’s side.'”
The former Commodore continued:
“He cranks the car up, he puts the tape in, right? And then he does this [turns around] and starts driving back down the driveway! And I screamed, ‘Stevie! What are you doing?’ And he said, ‘Ah, got you, didn’t I?’”

The former Motown Records labelmates first met at a Commodores show at the Apollo Theater, and, later, collaborated on the legendary AIDS fund super-song, “We Are The World.”
