NEWS NEARBY: Stevie Wonder Appears in Atlanta

News from Patch sites in the area.

Legendary musician Stevie Wonder dropped by Frank Ski's Restaurant & Lounge for a few hours Sunday evening to help his friend, Atlanta radio host Frank Ski, raise money for the Frank Ski Kids Foundation.

Ski holds the annual celebrity wine tasting and silent auction as a fund-raiser, but also as a way to invite the top leaders in various Atlanta spheres to congregate together casually for a fun night of wine and philanthropy. The event was hosted by actor Boris Kodjoe, along with former Def Jam CEO Kevin Liles and his wife, Erika.

The venue, filled with hundreds of Atlanta's movers and shakers, fell quiet as Wonder was led onto stage. He played a harmonica, lending it a little "Stevie Wonder spit." The instrument sold for $11,000.
