Stevie Wonder’s big White House tribute tonight will include serenades from Martina McBride, who will sing Wonder’s hit “You and I,” Will.I.Am, Tony Bennett, Paul Simon and India.Arie.

Tonight, President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will present Wonder, 58, with the Library of Congress’s Gershwin Prize for Popular Song.

Obama has called Wonder his musical hero and played some of his classic hits during stops on the presidential campaign trail. Obama last year told Rolling Stone that he really got into music during Wonder’s heyday in the early ’70s, when he released albums like “Talking Book,” “Innervisions” and “Songs in the Key of Life.” “

The salute will be held in the White House’s East Room and broadcast Thursday night on PBS.
