Calendar* Correction: Recording of Little Stevie Wonder's "Fingertips"

Some websites claim that Stevie Wonder recorded "Fingertips" live at the Regal Theater in Chicago, Illinois on May 21, 1962.  

All of that is true except the date.  Little Stevie Wonder, as he was then known, recorded a nearly seven-minute version of  "Fingertips" before an audience at the Regal in Chicago during a tour of the Motown Revue, but the performance was in June.  While one website says the show was on June 1, there is no one to corroborate that date, but Stevie's official website reports that the show was indeed in June, and the newspaper Seattle Post-Intelligencer confirms that the show was not on May 21, but in June .
