Lee Garrett

b. Lee Garrett, Mississippi, U.S.A.

Born blind in Mississippi, Lee Garrett developed a friendship with Stevie Wonder

This led to a collaboration on Stevie's album 'Where I'm Coming From'.

Stevie's and Lee's joint songwriting projects extended to artists including Jermaine Jackson ('Let's Get Serious'), The Detroit Spinners (It's A Shame') and back to Stevie again for 'Signed, Sealed, Delivered'.

As a solo artist, Lee signed to Chrysalis in the mid-70's where his one album 'Heat For The Feats' (1976) included 'You're My Everything' (UK Top 20), 'Better Than Walkin' Out' and 'Heart Be Still.'

There then became a difference of opinion between Stevie and Lee over the writing credits to Stevie's hit 'I Just Called To Say I Love You' with Lee claiming to have written the tune many years previously.

They have not been in contact since that time.
