This arrangement of the well-known Stevie Wonder classic (with a name so simple it requires that I add Stevie's name to the title to help folks know which tune it is...) was based on the Becca Stevens and Jacob Collier version, with acoustic guitar accompaniment (or piano if you prefer...chord chart with some lead lines written, not fully-notated). The beautiful message of the lyric is complimented by warm ensemble backing, some sweet lyric solo moments for any voice part, and poppy melismatic figures to add some flourish and style.
Partially-notated/chord chart acoustic guitar part (optional piano alternatively)
