Courtesy of Artist, Susaye Greene

Sunday, May 23

The fun continues with our month-long musical tribute to the legendary Stevie Wonder who turned 71 on May 13. Hear our conversation with former Supreme and Stevie Wonder backup singer Susaye Greene. She talks about co-writing the song “I Can’t Help it” with Wonder, featured on Michael Jackson’s 1979 Off The Wall album. Plus, Soulsations listener Lorenzo Atkinson from Wichita brings us this week’s DoubleTake: the Stevie Wonder ballad “Knocks Me Off My Feet”, also covered by R&B singer/songwriter Donell Jones. 

Here's a clip from our interview with Susaye Greene:
