stevie-wonderPeople wonder if Mary Landrieu can pull out a close one, once again.

Legendary musician Stevie Wonder is trying to make sure she does.


Below is a press release from the Landrieu campaign as the current US Senator fights for her political life in a race against republican congressman Bill Cassidy who is clearly leading by double digits in recent polls.

The Landrieu campaign today announced legendary R&B singer-songwriter Stevie Wonder will headline an event for Senator Mary Landrieu early next month. Wonder, a long-time friend and supporter of Senator Landrieu’s, will perform at a campaign fundraiser in New Orleans.

“We are overjoyed to have the continued support of the legendary Stevie Wonder, whose music resonates with Louisianians across the state,” said Fabien Levy, Communications Director for the Landrieu campaign. “His music has inspired millions, and we are excited to have him help us strongly close out our campaign.”

Supporters who wish to contribute to the campaign and attend the event should contact the Landrieu campaign for details on how to sign up.

Wonder recorded a radio ad during the primary election touting Senator Landrieu’s record of delivering for Louisiana, and will be once again lending his support to the campaign in the runoff election.

Wonder has won 25 Grammy Awards over an illustrious career, spanning more than 50 years. In addition to being a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and a Kennedy Center Honoree, Wonder has been named as a recipient of the 2014 Presidential Medal of Freedom. Senator Landrieu wrote a letter to the president urging him to award Wonder the medal.

Full details for the event will be announced at a later date.
