Stevie Wonder helped to boost donations for Paul Newman's summer camp organisation by an extra $100,000 (£66,700) on Thursday (21Oct10) - when a private bidder handed over the staggering amount for an intimate performance by the soul icon.
Hollywood stars including Meryl Streep, Bette Midler, Renee Zellweger and Bill Cosby all turned out for the New York benefit for Paul Newman's Hole in the Wall Camps last week, raising more than $3 million (£2 million) over the course of the night.
But charity organisers received an unexpected "afterhours" donation after the event wrapped, with the mystery buyer digging deep to land the private one-song show from Wonder, according to the New York Post's Page Six column.
