21 Famous Singers Who Won An Academy Award
In 1985, this multitalented artist won his first Academy Award for “I Just Called to Say I Love You,” which was the lead single for the film The Woman in Red. It charted at No. 1 in several countries, including the United States, Germany, Australia, Sweden, France, Spain, the United Kingdom, and South Africa. However, the latter had a bone to pick with Stevie after he accepted his Oscar at the ceremony. In his speech, he dedicated his award to civil rights leader Nelson Mandela, who was imprisoned at the time. So as a result, South Africa banned all of Stevie’s music from their radio stations.
