Stevie Wonder Joins Class Of 2017 - Receives Honorary Doctorate Degree From Yale

Stevie Wonder, along with eight others, received an honorary Doctorate Degree In Music from Yale. The citation follows:

The Music of Your Mind has brought joy to millions. You told us to “Clap our hands/just a little bit louder,” and the whole world clapped along. A Rock and Roll Hall of Famer with 25 Grammy Awards and an Oscar, you have always sung to us in the Key of Life,while working to help the poor, sick, and marginalized. Whether you were “Living for the City” or speaking up for “Misrepresented People,” you brought us to “Higher Ground,” with your incisive protest songs. And you got the whole country to sing “Happy Birthday” to Dr. King, helping establish a national holiday in his honor. Sorcerer of song, in appreciation of your irresistible music and your courageous humanitarian efforts, we are proud to present you with this Doctor of Music degree: “Signed, sealed, delivered, it’s yours!”
