NEW ORLEANS, USA (AP) — Applause and approval greeted Stevie Wonder as thousands stood for hours to hear his pre-Super Bowl concert that also featured guitarist Gary Clark, Jr.


Escorted on stage late Saturday by his daughter and back-up singer Aisha Morris, Wonder performed several of his hits, including his opening song, How Sweet It Is(To Be Loved By You).


That was followed by Master Blaster, Michael Jackson’s The Way You Make Me Feel,and Wonder’s own Higher Ground.


The 62-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member headlined the outdoor event held near the Wyndham Riverfront Hotel on the eve of yesterday’s game between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers.


Thousands packed a tent set up on a parking lot across the street from the hotel to hear Wonder, Clark, R&B artiste Janelle Monae and DJ Martin Solveig.
