CAPITOL RECORDS artist DARIUS RUCKER will pay tribute to STEVIE WONDER at the 15th annual MULTIPLE MYELOMA RESEARCH FOUNDATION (MMRF) FALL GALA, on OCTOBER 29th, in OLD GREENWICH, CT.
The event will honor WONDER with the SPIRIT OF HOPE AWARD, which is presented annually to those who inspire hope for overcoming personal obstacles. RUCKER will also be joined by MICHAEL McDONALD and STEELY DAN.
RUCKER said, “I am proud to participate in this tribute concert for STEVIE WONDER to benefit the MMRF -- an organization that has helped so many patients and families affected by this devastating cancer. Cancer affects everyone; it is my hope that my involvement will help the MMRF in their role of bringing patients new treatments and continuing on their path to a cure.”
