Stevie Wonder's Eyes
I hope this might be a nice thing for someone else out there. I thought it was beautiful, and figured no matter what type of music you enjoy, you may like it. And who knows, may be as impacting as it was for me.

YouTube - Steve Wonder - I never knew her name - Acapella

This is an old clip from an interview with Stevie Wonder, and it's a rare shot where you can see his eyes. He's mumbling through an improvised song, loosely called "I Never Knew Her Name". It surprised me, because I was always so used to seeing him with his glasses on. Long story short, I thought it was a neat thing, because he seems to be singing - impromtu - about a girl that's fallen sort of like sand through his hands, and it sounds at first like it would be a painful song, but without his glasses on, you can really see surprisingly, how much happiness there is in them, along with the long, big, shouting runs and moan-singing after each lyric. He's singing loud and to no one in particular as he's rocking to the piano, and his eyes are so full of life.

I also loved something I learned a long while back, about Stevie going blind after being put into an incubator. He lost his sight before he knew what a smile, or a frown, or any of the things a child learns by seeing and sensing with his or her eyes, so the expressions Stevie makes, while singing or during an interview like this, are all as pure, new and powerful as a newborn's. I got taken in by all of this from this little clip. I hope it may help others feel the way I felt (and still do now) when I was at my darkest point and found this on YouTube by accident.
