As previously reported by NewsOne, Stevie Wonder was scheduled to perform Dec. 6, 2012 for Friends of the Israel Defense Forces, which raises money for Israeli soldiers and their families. After several petitions called on the legendary musician and humanitarian, Wonder cancelled the performance “with a heavy heart” but reaffirmed that “I am and have always been against war, any war, anywhere.”

Pink Floyd’s Roger Water joined Walker in urging Keys not to support the Israeli regime:

“Please, Alicia, do not lend your name to give legitimacy to the Israeli government policies of illegal, apartheid, occupation of the homelands of the indigenous people of Palestine.”

Keys has yet to respond, but hopefully she hears the voices of her elders, fans, peers, activists and scholars urging her — in love — to stand for universal peace and justice.
