I was in middle school, one of my favorite artists has been Stevie
Wonder. What I like about him, besides his music, is his push for the
use of technology for the disabled, the visually impaired in particular.
Every year he has a concert called "Stevie Wonder's House Full of Toys
Concert Benefit" to raise money for toys as well as ask concert-goers to bring toys to the event.
The House Full of Toys Benefit Concert was first launched in 1996 at the House of Blues in Hollywood. The concert benefits the We Are You Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, that helps numerous charitable organizations such as Junior Blind of America, West Angeles Church of God and Christ, Hermosa Beach Officers’ Associations and over 80 agencies. In addition to financial assistance, the foundation provides charitable gifts like toys, computers, talking watches and other electronic aids/devices.
This will be the 7th year in a row Stevie Wonder will host his House Full of Toys Benefit Concert at Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE. Previous participants and performers include: Alicia Keys, Angela Winbush, Brian McKnight, Faith Evans, Deborah Cox, Robin Thicke, Tommy Davidson, Earth, Wind & Fire, and many more.
