Apple held the concert as part of its annual “Beer Bash” festivities, which in the past have featured artists such as Pharrell Williams and Zane Lowe. A plethora of images have emerged on social media showing the gathering of Apple executives and employees for the concert, which was kept a surprise until the day of.

Stevie Wonder, who has been legally blind since shortly after birth, has praised Apple’s Accessibility features in the past. In 2011, the musician thanked Stevie Jobs for Apple’s focus on ensuring that everyone can use its products. “There is nothing that you can do on the iPhone or iPad that I can’t do,” he said.

Furthermore, Wonder starred in Apple’s annual holiday advertisement. In the ad, he was seen using the macOS VoiceOver feature to produce a song in GarageBand. Check out that ad below.

Earlier this week, Apple released a new series of videos highlighting people with disabilities who use its products, while Tim Cook also sat down with three different YouTubers to discuss Apple’s Accessibility efforts.

A variety of different images of Stevie Wonder’s performance at Apple can be seen via Twitter and Instagram and are embedded right below. The artist performed a few songs and was graced by Tim Cook on stage at one point. If you happened to be there, let us know how it was in the comments!
