The legendary singer-songwriter told a Quebec City, Canada, crowd on Sunday that he would boycott Florida on future tours, along with any other state that has passed similar “stand your ground” legislation.
“I decided today that until the ‘stand your ground’ law is abolished in Florida, I will never perform there again,” Wonder said. “As a matter of fact, wherever I find that law exists, I will not perform in that state or in that part of the world.”
This would hurt, if it weren’t for “I Just Called To Say I Love You” and pretty much everything he recorded after about 1982.
But you have to ask if he’s ever performed for any dictators. Because that’s always been cool.
