“Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I’m Yours)” is a soul song, by American musician Stevie Wonder, released in June 1970 as a single on Motown’s Tamla label. It spent six weeks at number one on the U.S. R&B chart and peaked at number three on the U.S. Pop chart. In the same year, the song was also released on the album Signed, Sealed & Delivered.

The song was a series of firsts for the 20-year-old Wonder: “Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I’m Yours)” was the first single Wonder produced on his own, and was also the first to feature his female backup singing group composed of Lynda Tucker Laurence (who went on to become a member of The Supremes), Syreeta Wright (who also co-wrote the song and later married Wonder), and Venetta Fields. The song gave Wonder his sixth Grammy nomination, with the award that year going to the Clarence Carter song “Patches”. It is ranked number 203 on Rolling Stone’s list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
