For Once in My Life by Stevie Wonder is featured in Wonder-ful, the twenty-first episode of Season Four. It is sung by Artie with back-up from New Directions, Kurt, Mercedes, Mike, and Will. 

As the final song of the Stevie Wonder week and the episode, Artie and the New Directions finally understand the mentor's lessons and know that for them to succeed, they must not fear what's coming and embrace their talents. Before the performance, Artie describes passion and Kitty seems proud of him, especially with his decision of going to New York. He thanks Kitty after telling the club to meet at the auditorium at 4pm for a performance.

The Glee Club wear sunshine-coloured clothes as Artie leads the performance with Mercedes, Mike, Kurt, and Will watching. Kitty and Artie continue to exchange looks, suggesting a new friendship between the two. At the end of the song, the four in the audience jump on the stage and join the group number. 

Lyrics

Artie:
For once in my life I have someone who needs me
Someone I've needed so long
For once, unafraid, I can go where life leads me
Somehow I know I'll be strong

For once I can touch what my heart used to dream of
Long before I knew
Whoa, someone warm like you
Would make my dreams come true
Yeah, yeah, yeah
(New Directions: For once in my life)

For once in my life I won't let sorrow hurt me
Not like it's hurt me before (New Directions: Not like it's hurt before)
For once, I have something I know won't desert me
I'm not alone anymore (New Directions: I'm not alone anymore)

For once, I can say, (New Directions: Oooh)
This is mine, you can't take it (New Directions: Oooh)
As long as I know I have love, I can make it (New Directions: Oooh)
For once in my life, I have someone who needs me

New Directions:
Someone who needs me!

Artie:
Ha, ha, ha
Hey, yeah

New Directions:
Someone who needs me!

Artie:
Oh baby, love baby

New Directions:
For once in my life...

Someone who needs me

Artie:
For once in my life I won't let sorrow hurt me (New Directions: For once in my life)
Not like it's hurt me before (New Directions: Not like it's hurt before)
For once, I have something I know won't desert me (New Directions: Oooh)
I'm not alone anymore (New Directions: I'm not alone anymore)

For once, I can say, (New Directions: Oooh)
This is mine, you can't take it (New Directions: Oooh)
As long as I know I have love, I can make it (New Directions: Oooh)
For once in my life, I have someone who needs me (New Directions: Someone who needs me!)

Ho, for once in my life

New Directions:
Someone who needs me!
Yeah!

Artie:
Yeah
Somebody that needs me

New Directions:
Someone who needs me
Yeah!

Artie:
Ooh baby,
For once in my life

New Directions (with Artie):
Someone who needs me (Oh baby)
Yeah!

Artie:
For once in my life
