About the project

The Epitome of the Soul Award is an annual award presented at the Consortium’s yearly fundraiser. The award is presented to an artist who not only has impacted young artists with their influence and their work, but has also impacted the world with their humanitarian efforts.

The 2014 recipient was Stevie Wonder. His legendary music has left its mark on the world, but so has his philanthropic works. As a designated U.N. messenger of Peace with a focus on persons with disabilities, his activism has made him a pivotal voice for social progress.
