Stevie Wonder (soul/R&B/funk) He started as a boy-wonder for Motown and grew into one of their most ambitious artists. He controlled every aspect of most of his best records, playing almost all the instruments himself and experimenting with sounds, styles and structure in a way few on that label did. He won the Grammy for Album of the Year 3 times and grabbed an Oscar while having maybe the greatest 70s of any artist. His entire run from Signed, Sealed, Delivered through Hotter Than July is just tremendous. Recommended Listen: Innervisions Crash Course: 1. Innervisions 2. Songs in the Key of Life 3.

Personally, I would have loved to advocate for Signed, Sealed, Delivered, but he has too many great ones.
