Stevie Wonder has been left "utterly devastated" after his Los Angeles house was destroyed by wildfires.
The 'Superstition' singer's residence in the city's Porter Ranch area was ravaged by the deadly flames earlier this week.
A source close to the 58-year-old star told the New York Post newspaper: "Everything was destroyed - all of Stevie's memorabilia, photos, musical instruments, history, clothing, furniture, everything.
"It's all gone. It was his main residence and he is utterly devastated. Stevie has had to put his tour and appearances on hold while he deals with this."
The wildfires - which have killed two people - are expected to be contained today (16.10.08).
However, officials are warning that October and November could see more fires in the region when the winds start after months of dry weather.
Senator Dianne Feinstein explained: "As the climate warms and wild land fires become bigger and more intense, a rapid response is critical to prevent the spread of fires."
