(RTTNews) - Stevie Wonder has confirmed he will perform at a series
of concerts to commemorate the victims of the Armenian Genocide. The
news comes via the Russia-based Yerkramas newspaper.

These concerts, titled "Never Again," will conclude in 2015, which
will be the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. All the
artists and participants involved will also emphasize genocides in
Rwanda, Cambodia and Sudan.

"Something that may not be done through the power of politics can be
done through the power of music," said Anush Hovsepyan, spokeswoman
for Glendale-based non-profit Artists for Peace.

The first concert to honor these victims will be held April 17, 2011
at Hollywood's Universal City Gibson Amphitheatre. Wonder will be
performing alongside Canadian musician David Foster and famous
Armenian singer Flora Martirosyan.
