This handsome young man is the oldest child of Stevie Wonder and wife Kai Killard Morris (he filed for divorce from Morris in 2012, but their split still hasn’t been finalized), and his name is Kailand Obasi Morris. The couple have two children together out of Stevie’s seven.
The 13-year-old is already making a name for himself with his charitable contributions, and recently hosted his 2nd annual Hoop Life FriendRaiser over the weekend (yes, this kid has his own annual fundraiser event, how cool is that?). The fundraiser, which was a basketball tournament, was to benefit the All It Takes foundation. All It Takes focuses on youth leadership and encourages young people to work to effect positive change in the world. Kailand is a youth ambassador for the foundation. Aside from a few celebrities there to show support, including comedian J.B. Smooth and former NBA player Mark Jackson, Kailand’s famous father was present at the fundraiser too, along with the singer’s other sons Kwame and Mandla (his youngest child). We’re sure Stevie was proud!
When you look in his face, you can totally see Kailand’s resemblance to his legendary father, and it’s clear that Kailand is inspired by Stevie to do great things in the world. Check out more images of Wonder and his son below.
