Stevie Wonder says he won't perform again in Florida until the state abolishes its Stand Your Ground gun law. His announcement in the wake of the George Zimmerman not-guilty verdict Saturday came during a concert in Quebec City, according toThe Hollywood Reporter.

Zimmerman was acquitted in the Feb. 26, 2012, shooting death of teen Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fla. The outcome has sparked protests nationwide and an outpouring of outrage on social media. Wonder urged his fans to support his boycott.

"The truth is that - for those of you who've lost in the battle for justice, wherever that fits in any part of the world - we can't bring them back," he said. "What we can do is we can let our voices be heard. And we can vote in our various countries throughout the world for change and equality for everybody. That's what I know we can do."
