Stevie Wonder Reflects On Motown God and Prince

the record - MUSIC NEWS FROM NPR

On missing Prince, and being part of the Official Prince Tribute concert in 2016


It was hard to convey a message because I was in so much pain. Not saying I wasn't with the others. But we had previously, very recently talked and talked about his future and things that he wanted to do and how inspired he was with the things he wanted to do. It lets you know: Hey, tomorrow's not promised to anyone. But you say, "God, why him?" But we are not the controllers of life. And that's why people need to stop doing that, trying to control life. But I was — it was just painful for me. And as much as we say, "Well we've got his music. We've got their art, we got their this, we got their that" — I would've loved to have some more him, and them.

Absolutely. He gave us so much. I would have been happy for just some more 'him - with or without more music. He deserved a long and happy life.
