Stevie Wonder to join Barack Obama at Kissimmee event Sunday

in 2017/Top Headlines by

R&B legend Stevie Wonder will be joining President Barack Obama on stage in Kissimmee Sunday in the campaign for Hillary Clinton for president.

You can bet the message will be, Isn’t she lovely.

Wonder joins a long list of singers and celebrities who have joined the Clinton campaign tours in recent weeks in Florida yet may eclipse them all with his more than 50 years of songwriting, recording, performing and producing, and his 25 Grammy Awards.

The rally, focusing on get-out-the-vote efforts, is slated for 1:30 p.m. at Osceola Heritage Park Stadium. Tickets are required, available through the Hillary For America website or at one of the campaign offices in Osceola County. Gates open at noon.

There was no immediate indication from the campaign of whether Wonder will be performing or just appearing on stage with the president.
