While performing in Quebec City on July 14th 2013, Stevie Wonder responded to George Zimmerman Not Guilty verdict, after the shooting death of 17 year-old Trayvon Martin. Mr. Wonder announced, “Unless the Stand Your Ground Law is abolished in n Florida, I will never perform there again.” The iconic singer added further that he will no longer perform in any other states that adhere to said laws.
I’ve been blessed. I’ve had the opportunity to see Stevie Wonder in concert a couple of times, once on his birthday in New Orleans. He played for 5 hours straight. Florida, you’re missing out.
One of my favorites.
Yeah, I’m dancing like Elaine in Seinfeld. Don’t judge me.
