The White House is planning a concert next week to honor Stevie Wonder, whose music provided part of President Barack Obama's campaign soundtrack. The White House says the president and first lady Michelle Obama will present Wonder a Library of Congress award on Wednesday. The concert will be broadcast the next day on PBS as part of its "Performance at the White House" series.

The award-winning and chart-topping Wonder performed at the Democratic National Convention in Denver on the night Obama accepted his party's nomination. He also performed at a concert during the week of Obama's inauguration.

His song "Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours" became a theme song during the campaign. Obama also used "Higher Ground" during campaign stops.
