(UPI) --Get ready to hear "Sir Duke," "Isn't She Lovely" and all the other timeless tracks off Stevie Wonder's classic 1976 album, Songs in the Key of Life. The 63-year-old singer said in a press conference Tuesday that he would perform the whole album for the first time ever at an annual benefit concert for House Full of Toys.

His House Full of Toys charity event raises money to distribute toys and presents to children in need during the holidays.

"This has been a fantasy of mine for a while," Wonder said. "I wanted to do something that would thank everyone for supporting my career and also thank God for me being able to do the music I do. And listening to this album again, it is amazing to me how relevant it is today."

The concert will take place in L.A. on December 21, with tickets on sale at AXS.com November 1.
