Stevie Wonder To Perform At Gala For Friends Of The Israeli Defense Forces

Stevie Wonder is scheduled to perform at the annual gala of the Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF) organization on Thursday, December 6, at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles.

The event will be hosted by Cheryl and Haim Saban and is expected to be attended by more than 1,000 members of the Los Angeles Jewish community. The gala is considered one of the organization's flagship events and is known to raise millions of dollars.

Last year's performance was by Barbra Streisand, and the year before that, the crowd was treated to Andrea Bocelli.

FIDF is a non-profit organization which has been operating in the United States for 31 years. It was founded by a group of Holocaust survivors who immigrated to the US to provide for the well-being of the men and women who serve in the IDF as well as the families of fallen soldiers, according to the organization's self-description.
