"Isn't She Lovely" as written by and Stevie Wonder....
Isn't she lovely
Isn't she wonderful
Isn't she precious
Less than one minute old
I never thought through love we'd be
Making one as lovely as she
But isn't she lovely made from love
Isn't she pretty
Truly the angel's best
Boy, I'm so happy
We have been heaven blessed
I can't believe what God has done
Through us he's given life to one
But isn't she lovely made from love
Isn't she lovely
Life and love are the same
Life is Aisha
The meaning of her name
Londie, it could have not been done
Without you who conceived the one
That's so very lovely made from love

    General CommentWhat I think many people miss about this song is the fact that Stevie Wonder is blind, so there is a version of this song that includes audio clips of his interactions with her like her crying, and taking a bath. He's giving us a glimpse of how he "sees" his daughter.

    This song tears me up as I have a little girl of my own and she is my world.

    General CommentThis man DEFINITELY does not get the respect he deserves. How come nobody comments on Steve Wonder, one of the best musicians of all time?

    General CommentHmm. You didn't see enough comments to aptly praise Mr. Wonder, so you decided to leave an asenine comment. Nice.
    Anyone who listens to the song knows how great it SOUNDS. You've demonstrated that you have no understanding of THE MEANING of the song. Try crayola.com.
    My comment, however, responded to ZinbobDan's above in that, even without sight, Stevie Wonder could tell what his daughter looked like by touching her face. THAT, to me, is truly a beautiful thing and is what I love about this song. The harmonica sounds nice, too.

    Brenster. Obviously a Bush supporter. Even Stevie can see that. ^¿^

    General CommentI just had to crack a huge smile when he put his wife's and daughter's names in this song. Amen to this song.

    General CommentFor those who don't know, this song was written for Wonder's daughter Aisha. I know it's about a child, but it could just as easily be dedicated to a lover or any other great lady you know!

    This song is so upbeat, with great vocals by Stevie, and I always feel happy whenever I hear it. Sometimes, my bf will joke, "It's your song!" But what I really wish is for someone, a lover or anyone, to sing it to me. I wish my dad had written something like this for me when I was little! Aisha, I am so jealous!

    General CommentI was racking my brain trying to think of a song that would be appropriate for a father/daughter dance at my wedding, and then I remembered hearing Stevie Wonder had written this for his daughter. I think this might be the song we use for the dance, it's a really nice song.
