Stevie Wonder Sings “My Cherie Amour” Live! Do You Know DJ Tick Tick Boom? It’s Stevie – Here’s Video!

Celebrating The Musical Genius Of Stevie Wonder!

As I was looking back at some videos I recorded at concerts, I was taken once again to one of the great nights of music I’ve ever experienced!

I saw Steve Wonder live in a very unique concert – with a hilarious creative finale!

Here’s one of the songs he performed live:

The Story Behind “My Cherie Amour!”

Of course, everyone knows this Stevie Wonder classic:

“My Cherie Amour, lovely as a summer day

My Cherie Amour, distant as the Milky Way

My Cherie Amour, pretty little one that I adore

You’re the only girl my hear beats for

How I wish that you were mine…”

The song was originally written about Wonder’s girlfriend while he was at the Michigan School for the Blind in Lansing, Michigan, and had the title “Oh My Marsha”. After they broke up, the lyrics and title were altered to the more general “My Cherie Amour”.

I got to see Wonder perform his masterpiece “Songs In The Key Of Life” in its entirety live – and afterwards, he performed a number of greatest hits under the name – ready for this?

DJ Tick Tick Boom!

Yes, the Singer had a blast calling himself “DJ Tick Tick Boom!”

Wonder’s daughter was onstage singing along with him as well – check out this wonderful clip as he tells the audience to sing lead on “My Cherie Amour” and they do!

What a joyful celebration of his music!

Did you know that Steve Wonder is the only musical Artist in history to win THREE consecutive Album Of The Year Grammy Awards?

Click here to see that story!

He won those awards in 1973, 1974 and 1976.

And here’s something hilarious!

When Paul Simon won the Album Of The Year Grammy in 1975, he thanks Stevie Wonder from the stage for NOT releasing an album that year!

Oh, and did you know that right after Simon & Garfunkel won the Best Album Grammy in 1970 for “Bridge Over Troubled Waters” they broke up?

Here’s the song from that album that explains why! It’s a wild story!

Was the movie worth it to Garfunkel? Well, “Catch-22” was a box office bomb when released, but has grown in stature over the years. Director Steven Soderbergh recorded a commentary track with Nichols for the home video release and it’s amazing – see more here:

  1. Hi John, some lovely information about Stevie Wonder here. Sally Cronin recently ran a series about him with William Price. That was also very informative.


  2. Great stories!! Thank goodness Stevie changed the song title. I laughed out loud at Paul Simon’s comment.


  3. What an amazing concert this must have been to experience. Some memories stay with us forever


  4. Love his music! Must have been wonderful to see him live.

  5. It must have been great to see Stevie in concert. I never got the opportunity to do that, mainly due to usually being on shift as an EMT when he appeared in London.
    Best wishes, Pete.
