At 63 years old Stevie Wonder is still coming on strong. Reporting on Stevie Wonder, TheCelebrityCafe.com wrote on Oct. 29, 2013 that Stevie Wonder is planning to release two albums next year. Sources say that aside from the two albums Wonder is planning to release next year, he is also working on a third one already.
It's been eight years since Wonder released an album. His two newest album creations, "When the World Began" and "Ten Billion Hearts", are scheduled to to be released sometime in 2014. Wonder says his music has been inspired by his "children, family, change, growth, heartbreaks." He also mentioned several hip-hop elements as having an influence on his music. Wonder said, "I listen a lot to rap, and I'm inspired to take it,
to use it in another way, to get the message across."
Billboard has also covered the story of Wonder's new music, reporting that Wonder is working on two albums for 2014. Although Wonder was divorced last year, he says his family has had an inspirational influence on his music. Wonder also has plans to fulfill a promise which he once made to his mother Lula, who died in 2006, by recording a gospel album in memory of her. At his annual Los Angeles charity for the needy concert, Wonder is planning a celebration of one of his most popular albums, "Songs in the Key of Life," from 1976. It's great to see this legend still putting out great music after all of these years.
