Hallelujah for Stevie! He took the opportunity on stage at the Grammy Awards to draw attention to a super important issue – the need for equal accessibility for disabled people. And he did it with poise and a sense of humor, too.
The legendary crooner was on stage to present the award for Song of the Year with Pentatonix, and when it came time to open the envelope and announce the winner, he showed the white card to the audience and laughed “So you all cant read this huh?” before singing “You can’t read it, you can’t read braille!”

That’s when he took a moment to get serious. “I just wanna say before saying the winner that we need to make every single thing accessible to every single person with disabilities.” Bravo, Stevie! He makes an amazing point, and his fans couldn’t have agreed more. They took to Twitter right after the hilarious joke to congratulate him on his poignant remark. Here are some of their very best responses.

Stevie Wonder just said more about disability in a sentence than all the presidential candidates have in all six hundred debates combined.
