Apple's Steve Jobs gets shout-out from Stevie Wonder

Wonder
Magic. Reality distortion. Wonder.

Steve Jobs has conjured many such musings over the years.

Now the real Wonder has paid tribute to the Apple founder.

At a show honoring Stevie Wonder on Saturday in Echo Park, the 22-time Grammy winner sang Jobs' praises. And he extolled the virtues of Apple, which has built accessibility into its products.

"I want you all to give a hand to someone that you know whose health is very bad at this time.... His company took the challenge in making his technology accessible to everyone. In the spirit of caring and moving the world forward: Steve Jobs. Because there's nothing on the iPhone or the iPad that you can do that I can't do. As a matter of fact, I can be talking to you, you can be looking at me, and I can be doing whatever I need to do and you don't even know what I'm doing. Yeah!"

The shout-out was first noted by Anil Dash and picked up by The Next Web.

Wonder's comments start at about 4:40 in the clip below.
