After being honored with Billboard’s Icon Award, Stevie Wonder paid tribute to two other music icons, who made big contributions to the industry. The music legend spoke to reporters about Donna Summer, who died May 17, and Bee Gees member Robin Gibb, whose death was reported hours before the 2012 Billboard Music Awards.
Wonder went on to reflect on music’s ability to endure, saying we will forever have the voices of those we’ve lost, which can be used to “educate others about how great that person was.”
