One of the most celebrated and revered icons of American popular music delivered a simple yet powerful message of tolerance at the United Nations this Monday.

Addressing gun violence and terrorism worldwide, singer-songwriter Stevie Wonder stated that "wrong is wrong, no matter how you put it."

The multiple award-winning musician and UN Messenger of Peace was at UN Headquarters in New York to celebrate Nelson Mandela International Day.

Celebrated annually on 18 July, it provides an opportunity for people to serve their communities in honour of the late South African leader.

Dianne Penn asked Stevie Wonder what Mr Mandela's years of public service mean to him.
