Stevie Wonder’s birthday was Sunday, but it seems like the celebration has been under way since at least last week. And if he has his way, it won’t stop anytime soon.

The legendary soul singer who has a history of social activism recently offered up his opinions, and solutions, surrounding several contentious topics, including but definitely not limited to the sad state of affairs in the world.

To counter the widespread “confusion” and surge of hate around the globe, Wonder’s first order of business, he said, was to perform a series of “positive” shows, according to the Associated Press, which attended the Hollywood performance.

“So much is going on in the world. And there is too much confusion,” Wonder said during the performance last Thursday. “The one thing we know for sure that we can celebrate is our life, our love and our music… The positive will win in the end.”

He also had an impromptu jam session with Donald Glover, the actor who also sings and raps as Childish Gambino. Wonder said he wanted to work with Glover for an upcoming album.

  1. Charleston, SC, port of origin for most African Americans, home of the folk opera Porgy & Bess, in its racial truth and reconciliation efforts following the Emanuel tragedy, could really benefit by hosting a Stevie Wonder ‘Positive’ Concert to get everyone back on the right beat, the upbeat, more than the downbeat. (Especially since the Mayor, John Tecklenberg, is a jazz pianist.)
