During these trying days, the Israel Defense Forces is getting a powerful boost of support from an unexpected source: Stevie Wonder. The singer is set to perform at the Friends of the Israeli Defense Forces annual gala in Los Angeles on Dec. 6.

Wonder will just call to tell Israeli soldiers he loves them at the event, which raises millions of dollars annually to support the Israeli military. Movie producer Haim Saban is hosting for an organization founded by Holocaust survivors 31 years ago. In a statement, Saban said, “The annual FIDF Western Region Gala has become a tradition and a must-attend event for the Los Angeles Jewish community. The event connects the community to the IDF’s soldiers, and this is our opportunity to thank the soldiers who defend the State.”

Wonder is following in the footsteps of last year’s main attraction: Barbra Streisand.
