In celebration of the 67th founding of the United Nations, Stevie Wonder will perform and artistically direct this year's United Nations Day Concert. The icon is a member of the UN's Messenger of Peace program and has lent his star power to numerous humanitarian initiatives affecting the lives of individuals around the world.
With songs of love, hope and peace, Wonder will be joined by some of his powerhouse colleagues on stage, including Alicia Keys, Keyshia Cole, BeBe Winans, Marvin Winans, Valerie Simpson, Sting and Paul Simon. The concert's theme will be "a message of peace" and will call on others to think about their humanitarian work.
The two-hour special will be live streamed tonight at 7 p.m. EDT here at BET.com and on the United Nations website. It will also be recorded for future broadcast on BET and Centric.
