Music Legend Stevie Wonder to Pay Tribute to Late Mother with New Gospel Album


Last week Music Icon Stevie Wonder revealed that he has a Gospel album in the works! The multiple award-winning legend was at the opening night of the Hollywood Bowl’s new season to induct R&B singer John Legend into the venue’s Hall of Fame. During the event, Wonder spoke with Rolling Stone Magazine about the three new projects he’s working on, including paying tribute to his mother with a gospel album. Check out a few excerpts from the interview below to hear what he has to say about the upcoming music!

RS: And whats the third project?

Stevie: “Gospel Inspired By Lula, a gospel album I’m doing in tribute to my mother. I promised her I would do it. She always wanted me to do it before she passed away, the untimely passing away. We’ve been working on some songs and some ideas. So we’re going to complete that as well.

RS: It must be very personal, recording that.

Stevie: We’re going to do some traditional gospel stuff, but I’m thinking about doing a gospel song in Arabic. I’m going to twist it all up in different ways, because I think everyone needs to hear the word of the gospel. The word of gospel really is love and it really is about people following the word, whether they read the Quran, the Torah or the Bible, whatever they read. At the end of the day, whatever you read, you know the god you believe in talking about people loving one another. It’s talking about we don’t need millions of handguns to make an understanding clear. It’s not about the religion – it’s about the relationship that you have with the one you serve and you worship.

RS: And when will people hear that one?

Stevie: All of these are coming out relatively soon, but I never put a time on things, because the most important thing is that it’s good. Hopefully we get it the way it feels good to me, and in the case of the one I’m working on with David, both he and myself feel good about it.
