Detroit’s newest summer festival is here to honor one of Motown’s greatest legends, Stevie Wonder. The inaugural “Health, Love & Music Festival: A Tribute to Stevie Wonder” will be held on Saturday, July 22, at the College for Creative Studies campus from 1-7 p.m. This event is organized by Stevie Wonder‘s cousin, Sharon DuMas, and aims to raise money for her non-profit organization, Full & Fabulous Curvy Girl Project.

A Festival for a Cause

The Full & Fabulous Curvy Girl Project offers personal development and positive body image resources to young plus-size women. This year, the organization is raising money to purchase a van that will transport underprivileged girls to work, health appointments, and therapy sessions. Sharon DuMas states, “We are dedicated to creating a brighter future for underprivileged teenage girls by breaking down barriers to health and well-being.”

A Day of Entertainment and Empowerment

The festival will feature a live performance from R&B singer Alise King, food trucks, a gospel choir competition, a double-dutch competition, health demonstrations, and a youth summit on curbing violence among Detroit youth. Although Stevie Wonder’s appearance at the festival is not yet confirmed, organizers say he supports Full & Fabulous and is “trying to work it out in his schedule.”

Join the Celebration

The Health, Love & Music Festival will take place in the CCS parking lot on Woodward Avenue. Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for children aged 6 and up. For more information, visit
