LOS ANGELES: Stevie Wonderâ€™s music helped sign, seal and deliver Barack Obama all the way to the White House, and now the US president and first lady are sending him a big shout-out.
The 58-year-old Motown legend will receive a Library of Congress award from the commander-in-chief and Michelle Obama on February 25. The concert will air on PBS the following day.
President Obama used Wonderâ€™s hit songs Signed, Sealed, Delivered Iâ€™m Yours and Higher Ground on the campaign trail. The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter also performed at the Democratic National Convention on the night Obama accepted his partyâ€™s nomination, at a concert during inauguration week and at The Neighbourhood Inaugural Ball.
