Isn't She Lovely? is a song by Stevie Wonder, from his 1976 album Songs in the Key of Life. In it he

celebrates the birth of his daughter, Aisha. There are three verses, each ending with the phrase "isn't she lovely, made from love" (or "so very lovely..."). The recording opens with the sound of a baby crying, and the outro features Aisha as a baby. The radio edit leaves out the crying baby sounds at the beginning and has a much shorter outro.

Stevie Wonder performed this song live for Queen Elizabeth II at her Diamond Jubilee Concert on the 4th of June 2012, with lyrics modified to refer to the Queen.

Harry Styles of One Direction covered it for his audition to season 7 of The X Factor (UK) in 2010.

Lyrics

Isn't she lovely
Isn't she wonderful
Isn't she precious
Less than one minute old
I never thought through love we'd be
Making one as lovely as she
But isn't she lovely made from love

Isn't she pretty
Truly the angel's best
Boy, I'm so happy
We have been heaven blessed
I can't believe what God has done
Through us he's given life to one
But isn't she lovely made from love

Isn't she lovely
Life and love are the same
Life is Aisha
The meaning of her name
Londie, it could have not been done
Without you who conceived the one
That's so very lovely made from love
