    Steve Jobs may now be gone as Apple's CEO but he is not forgotten.

    Legendary R&B singer Stevie Wonder took a moment out of a show honoring the 22-time Grammy Award-winner Saturday evening to pay respect to Jobs.

    In particular, Wonder wanted to praise Jobs and Apple for their work making some of their products accessible to visually impaired people such as himself.

    "I want you all to give a hand to someone that you know whose health is very bad at this time.... His company took the challenge in making his technology accessible to everyone," Wonder said on stage. "In the spirit of caring and moving the world forward: Steve Jobs. Because there's nothing on the iPhone or the iPad that you can do that I can't do. As a matter of fact, I can be talking to you, you can be looking at me, and I can be doing whatever I need to do and you don't even know what I'm doing. Yeah!"

    The moment was captured on a shaky camera and posted to YouTube but the message is clear.
