The article describes the private side of international superstar Stevie Wonder whose real name is Steveland Morris. According to Wonder, coping with blindness is an emotional struggle and that he was tired of being blind but he holds on to the hope that one day a technological or medical breakthrough will enable him to see. However, this statement was a contradiction of his past assertion that blind did not mean handicapped. Also noted are his sports activities and his gracious manner that has increased his reputation as a ladies' man.
