Stevie Wonder’s 19th Annual House Full of Toys Benefit Concert, a fixture of the charity calendar in California, has been confirmed to take place this year on December 20 at the Forum in Los Angeles. The Motown star will follow his 11-date tour performing the whole of the classic ‘Songs In The Key Of Life’ album by also playing the entire record at the charity event.
Stevie gave what was then a one-off performance of ‘Songs In The Key’ at the 18th ‘House Full Of Toys’ benefit concert last December, at the Nokia Theatre at L.A. Live. This year’s charity show will follow the conclusion of Wonder’s ‘Songs In The Key Of Life Performance Tour,’ which begins on November 6 at Madison Square Garden, New York, NY and ends on December 5 at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California.
General tickets for the House Of Toys benefit will be available from Saturday (November 1), here. The show will begin at 8PMm and as usual concert-goers will be encouraged to bring unwrapped gifts to the venue, where they will be collected.
The House Full of Toys Benefit Concert is in aid of the non-profit We Are You Foundation, and charitable gifts are 100% tax deductible. Longtime rapper Snoop Dogg has recently revealed that the new album he is working on with have guest spots by Stevie Wonder and Charlie Wilson, with production for the I Am Other label by Pharrell Williams.
