Musical genius Stevie Wonder recently said he is considering “doing a gospel song in Arabic” for a new album he has in the works.
The tribute album, “Gospel Inspired By Lula,” will be in his mother’s memory; an album she always wanted him to do before her death, Wonder told Rolling Stone Magazine.
And somehow, in that creative mind of his, Wonder makes a bizarre leap from gospel music, including a song in Arabic, to an issue he feels strongly about – gun control.
He said the word of gospel, in any religion, is to love one another, and we can’t do that if everyone is walking around armed.
Wonder explained this to the magazine:
We’re going to do some traditional gospel stuff, but I’m thinking about doing a gospel song in Arabic. I’m going to twist it all up in different ways, because I think everyone needs to hear the word of the gospel. The word of gospel really is love and it really is about people following the word, whether they read the Quran, the Torah or the Bible, whatever they read. At the end of the day, whatever you read, you know the god you believe in talking about people loving one another. It’s talking about we don’t need millions of handguns to make an understanding clear. It’s not about the religion – it’s about the relationship that you have with the one you serve and you worship.
Wonder then went on a little rant about how those bad, bad guns kill people. No, he doesn’t discuss bad, bad people killing people, he said its guns that kill.
Wonder told Rolling Stone:
It hurts so bad in my heart that it makes me have a headache, because it shouldn’t be that we are more focused on things that basically are a deterioration of a nation when in fact we should perpetuate the very essence that we know is the reason why we are where we are, meaning in the positive place. So I challenge politicians to grow up and wake up and get it together. I challenge parents to be more involved with their children, with schools, with education. And I challenge everyone to doing something we’ve got to do – we’ve got to control a gun and save a life. Control the guns and save lives, that’s what we have to do, because it’s out of control. Guns don’t see any ethnicity, they don’t see any gender. They just kill. And we have to really take a position.
The great thing about being blind is I don’t see all this, but I see it even deeper than everybody, so it hurts even deeper, because it’s even deeper than I can imagine. It’s gotten out of control . . . I would like for you and all the people that are communicators, as myself, we have to understand that we are dealing with a spiritual war, and we have to do something about guns. And if people just have to have guns, we’ve got to find a way of making every single one with [a gun] more accountable, completely accountable. If we can fly to the furthest planet that they know of, then we’ve got to find a way of making every single person with a gun accountable.
