Stevie Wonder will revisit his 1976 masterpiece Songs In The Key Of Life by performing the album in its entirety at this year’s House Full Of Toys benefit in Los Angeles. Wonder announced this at a press conference for the benefit, which helps children in need during the holiday months.
Recorded in 1976, Songs In The Key Of Life was Wonder’s most ambitious project at the time, a sprawling double album with such acclaimed musicians as Herbie Hancock backing Wonder up. The album ended up being a massive success, spawning the hit singles “Sir Duke” and “Isn’t She Lovely.” Today, it is regarded as one of Wonder’s finest works and one of the greatest albums of all time.
Wonder has a number of other projects in the works as well, including two albums tentatively titled When The World Began and Ten Billion Hearts, as well as a gospel record dedicated to his mother titled Gospel Songs For Lula. None of these works have a set release date at this time.
