Stevie Wonder wants to trade "Stand Your Ground" for "Higher Ground."
Between songs at a music festival in Quebec City on Sunday, the Motown legend reacted to a Florida jury's acquittal of George Zimmerman in the Feb. 26, 2012 shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin by announcing he would boycott the Sunshine State and all other places in the country that have "Stand Your Ground" laws.
"I know I'm not everybody. I'm just one person. I'm a human being. But for the gift that God has given me and for whatever I mean, I've decided today that until the 'Stand Your Ground' law is abolished in Florida, I will never perform there again," said Wonder. "As a matter of fact, wherever I find that law exists, I will not perform in that state or in that part of the world."
