Stevie Wonder Will Not Back Down As Other Artists Follow His Lead


Okay so if you didn't already read it here (Stevie Wonder Boycotts Florida in response to the Zimmerman Not Guilty Verdict) you've probably heard it somewhere else by now that Stevie Wonder was the first to stand up and openly state that he would no longer perform in Florida until they get rid of the 'stand your ground' law. When I wrote my piece I said it would be wonderful if the rest of the celebrity performing community would follow suit. Well guess what! Since Stevie made his announcement, O'Jays lead singer Eddie Lavert said on his Twitter account:  
“I, Eddie Levert will not play Florida until they change their gun laws, I’m going to join Mr. Stevie Wonder in his boycott of Florida."

Below you'll find a clip of what Stevie said to the fans that night.
