Stevie Wonder is contributing his son “My Love”, and Humberto Gatica will produce the finale in which all the musicians will perform Wonder’s song.
The report adds that “all proceeds from the tickets will be donated to the NGO Children of Persia to finance medical treatment for children in Iran, and to the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran.”
