Music legend Stevie Wonder will be performing his album Songs In The Key of Life in its entirety at Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park on Sunday July 10.

Stevie Wonder's Songs In The Key of Life Tour has run for 18 months in the US, having been extended many times due to public demand.

Coming to the UK for the first time, Stevie Wonder will be performing at Hyde Park on the album's 40th anniversary year.

Featuring the hits Sir Duke, Isn't She Lovely and I Wish, the record won Grammy Album Of The Year in 1977. It is also cited as an influence on many of the world's biggest names, including Barack Obama and Kanye West.

On his musical heroes, Mr Obama told Rolling Stone in 2008: "If I had one, it would have to be Stevie Wonder.

"When I was just at that point where you start getting involved in music, Stevie Wonder had that run with Music of My Mind, Talking Book, Fulfillingness' First Finale and Innervisions, and then Songs In The Key of Life.

"Those are as brilliant a set of five albums as we've ever seen."

In a 2005 interview, Kanye West said: "I'm not trying to compete with what’s out there now. I'm really trying to compete with Innervisions and Songs In The Key of Life.

"It sounds musically blasphemous to say something like that, but why not set that as your bar?"

James King, senior vice president at AEG Live, said: "I can't think of a better way for us to announce our final act for BST Hyde Park than with Stevie Wonder's masterpiece Songs In The Key of Life.

"Arguably the greatest album ever performed, by one of the greatest recording artists and live performers of all time. It's a historic event that cannot be missed."
