With a Song In My Heart is Stevie Wonder's third album, released in 1963 on the Tamla (Motown) label. The album was the first to drop Wonder's Littlenickname as the 13-year-old singer went the same route of his label mate Marvin Gaye and covered a set of standards. Like Gaye and other Motown acts, label president Berry Gordy wanted all of his artists to be established on a crossover basis. The album did not immediately spell success for Wonder on the adult contemporary set. Veteran jazz arranger Ernie Wilkins arranged and conducted the album.
