Carrie Underwood and Stevie Wonder will join singer Tony Bennett for a benefit concert in Los Angeles this month to benefit Drive to End Hunger, a national effort by AARP and AARP Foundation to end hunger among older Americans.

The concert at the Staples Center on Sept. 24 also celebrates Bennett's 85th birthday. The one-night event, presented by AARP, will feature songs from Bennett's eagerly anticipated new album, Tony Bennett: Duets II, to be released Sept. 20.

"It is terrific to be working with AARP once again, especially for a cause like ending hunger among older Americans, which often does not get much attention," said Bennett, who has 15 Grammy Awards. "I know this event will make a big difference and I am thrilled to be a part of it and have some of my favorite musical performers join me for the concert."

In celebration of Bennett's birthday, AARP will construct a 16-foot high electronic "cake" on the Staples Center plaza that will allow people to write birthday greetings to Bennett and will show videos of the singer. "Tony has successfully captured a whole new generation of listeners and at age 85, he's still a consummate performer at the top of his game," said A. Barry Rand, CEO of AARP. "Not only is he a living legend in the world of music, his dedication to giving back to the community is inspiring, and we're thrilled to have him join AARP in our goal to end hunger for older people in America."

To date, Drive to End Hunger has organized food and cash donations to provide more than 2.7 million meals through local hunger relief organizations.
