US president Barack Obama is to host a concert in honour of Stevie Wonder, it has been announced.

The musician's song Signed, Sealed, Delivered played an integral role in President Obama's election campaign and he will be presented with a Library of Congress award on February 25th.

A concert in honour of multiple Grammy winner Wonder will be held in the East Room of the White House next Wednesday before being broadcast the following day on the PBS television network, as part of a Performance at the White House series.

Wonder performed at the 2008 Democratic National Convention when Mr Obama accepted his party's nomination for the US presidency and also performed during the 44th president's inauguration week.
