Hitmaking star Stevie Wonder to record gospel project

R&B AND POP superstar Stevie Wonder is planning a gospel album to be released as a tribute to his late mother Lula Mae Hardaway. He told Rolling Stone magazine, "We're going to do some traditional gospel stuff, but I'm thinking about doing a gospel song in Arabic. I'm going to twist it all up in different ways, because I think everyone needs to hear the word of the Gospel." 'Gospel Inspired By Lula' will be the result of a promise he made to his mother. Said Stevie, "I promised her I would do it. She always wanted me to do it before she passed away, the untimely passing away. We've been working on some songs and some ideas. . . The word of the Gospel really is love and it really is about people following the word." CR
