LOS ANGELES (AP) — Stevie Wonder wants to raise money through a benefit concert for California fire victims impacted by the catastrophic wildfires.

The R&B legend announced his plan Tuesday to help firefighters and first responders who assisted with the fires at the 22nd annual House Full of Toys Benefit Concert on Dec. 9. The charity billed as "The Stevie Wonder Song Party: A Celebration of Life, Love & Music" will be held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Wonder says it's very important for "us who have been fortunate to do something for those less fortunate." He says his foundation House Full of Hope will also help raise money for those affected by the wildfire.

Nearly 90 people were killed in the wildfires as thousands have been displaced from their homes.
