In 1972 Stevie Wonder walked into the studio of producers Malcolm Cecil and Robert Margouleff and didn't emerge for another five years. Backed by Cecil and Margouleff's ingenious use of synthesizers, Wonder tackled a wide range of social issues, solidifying his role as one of the most influential musicians of our time. Listen as people Stevie worked with as well as music critics and fans share their admiration for Stevie's prolific output of classics as a musician in a trailer for Soundbreaking.
