Stevie Wonder reflects on his thirty year friendship with Ray Kurzweil and what Ray means to him.  
Transcendent Man Stevie Wonder: I, you know, let me say this: what I know is that he has used the gift that he was given. He discovered at five years old for the betterment of humankind, that’s what I know. All the rest of it I’m aware of it, but the most important thing to me is that he has allowed his heart to connect with his mind and used what he has been given to move humankind to a greater and better pace that’s what I know.
