"My Cherie Amour" is a 1969 soul classic by Motown singer-songwriter Stevie Wonder.
The song was originally recorded in 1966, but not released (it was subsequently remixed for release in 1969). Co-written by the singer, Henry Cosby, and Sylvia Moy, the song was an autobiographical account by Wonder about a woman he was fascinated with while in school at the Michigan School for the Blind in Lansing, Michigan.
The song was originally written as "Oh My Marcia" but Moy told Stevie to change the name from Marcia to cherie amour. The song became a #4 hit on both the Billboard pop and R&B singles charts in 1969. The song has been covered by fellow Motown act The Jackson 5, as well as by vocalists Andy Williams for his 1969 RIAA-certified gold album Get Together with Andy Williams and Billy Eckstine for his 1971 album Feel the Warm.
My Cherie Amour is played on the Miss Dior Cherie commercial.
