Stevie Wonder performing in Memphis in October

The Consortium MMT, a nonprofit dedicated to help cultivate Memphis’ homegrown musical talent, is honoring Stevie Wonder at “A Soulright Evening,” an event coming in October to the Downtown Cannon Center that will include a performance by Wonder.

The event, presented by Southeastern Asset Management, will be held on Oct. 11 at 8 p.m. and will include both performances from Wonder as well as artists paying tribute to his repertoire of hits. “American Idol” music director Rickey Minor will serve as producer and music director.

Memphis native and multi-Grammy award winner David Porter founded The Consortium MMT in 2012 to foster a new pool of young musical talent in Memphis.
