On this day in history: May 13, 1985 - After attempting to serve arrest warrants at 6221 Osage Avenue, police in West Philadelphia are sucked into a 90-minute gunfight with members of the MOVE organization. Later, police drop a bomb on the house from a helicopter. The bomb misses its target and ignites a fire which consumes the entire city block. 61 houses are destroyed in the conflagration, killing 11 MOVE members -- including five children -- and leaving hundreds of neighbors homeless.

Born on this day in history: May 13, 1950 - Stevie Wonder (1950– ) Born in Saginaw, MI, musician superstar Stevie Wonder, a premature baby, was blinded by receiving too much oxygen in the incubator. In 1963, at 12, his single, "Fingertips - Pt. 2" became his first million seller. On his 21st birthday, Wonder renegotiated his contract to gain artistic control. In the 1970s, he released a series of innovative, commercially successful albums that fused progressive rock and soul, social commentary and ballads. Wonder was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1989.
