June 26, 2013 1:57 PM

“Gospel Inspired By Lula, [is] a gospel album I’m doing in tribute to my mother,” Wonder said in the interview. “I promised her I would do it. She always wanted me to do it before she passed away, the untimely passing away. We’ve been working on some songs and some ideas. So we’re going to complete that as well.”

Wonder emphasized that he hopes to spread the word of gospel to all his fans, regardless of faith or religion, and even intends to perform a song in Arabic.

“I’m going to twist it all up in different ways, because I think everyone needs to hear the word of the gospel,” he said. “The word of gospel really is love and it really is about people following the word, whether they read the Quran, the Torah or the Bible, whatever they read. At the end of the day, whatever you read, you know the god you believe in talking about people loving one another. It’s not about the religion – it’s about the relationship that you have with the one you serve and you worship.”
