Soul man Stevie Wonder is set to become the first star saluted by new U.S. President Barack Obama.
The hitmaker, who performed at Obama's inauguration ball, will be honoured as part of a White House concert to be held on 25 February (09), when Wonder collects his Library of Congress medal.
Obama used Wonder's classics Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours and Higher Ground as theme songs on the campaign trail. He famously danced until the early hours after becoming America's 44th President on 20 January (09).
