Stevie Wonder's music helped sign, seal and deliver Barack Obama all the way to the White House, and now the president and first lady are sending him a big shout-out.

The 58-year-old Motown legend will receive a Library of Congress award from the commander-in-chief and Michelle Obama on Feb. 25. The concert will air on PBS the following day.

President Obama used Wonder's hit songs "Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours" and "Higher Ground" on the campaign trail. The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter also performed at the Democratic National Convention on the night Obama accepted his party's nomination, at a concert during inauguration week and at The Neighborhood Inaugural Ball.
