Music legend, activist and philanthropist Stevie Wonder is bringing his House Full of Toys benefit concert back to the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. The holiday event will celebrate its 24th anniversary on Dec. 17, 2022. Its slate of performers will be announced in the coming weeks.
In a statement announcing the benefit, Wonder said, “Today, more than ever throughout the world, we are challenged with many issues: social, political, economic and spiritual. But that must not stop our opportunity to give and share in the spirit and reason for the season. I am as always overjoyed to again present the celebration of House Full of Toys.”
Last year’s House Full of Toys marked its return after a three-year break owing to Wonder’s successful kidney transplant in 2019 followed by the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2021 lineup included Ledisi, Johnny Gill and the icon himself.
Over the years, Wonder has recruited a diverse array of stars to perform at the holiday concert including John Legend, Lionel Richie, Sheryl Crow, Justin Bieber, Drake, Anderson .Paak, Leon Bridges, PJ Morton, Ella Mai and Ari Lennox.
Tickets for this year’s event go on sale to the general public this coming Friday, Nov. 4, at 1 pm ET via AXS.COM. Concertgoers are also asked to bring an unwrapped toy or unwrapped gift of joy as a donation.
House Full of Toys is presented on behalf of Wonder’s nonprofit organization, the We Are You Foundation. The holiday concert will benefit children, people with disabilities and families in need.
