Wonder Pays Thousands For His Own Award
Legendary soul singer STEVIE WONDER has paid $29,250 (GBP15,000) for a Grammy Award he won in 1974 after the stolen statue was placed for sale on the auction website eBay.
The Best Album accolade, which Wonder received for his LP INNERVISIONS just months after emerging from a car accident-induced coma, was put online by a California auction house on behalf of an independent seller.
Police will not get involved because the award was never reported stolen.
In spite of the EBONY AND IVORY singer's 22 Grammys, a friend tells British newspaper the Daily Mirror, "This one is special."
