Stevie Wonder is reported to be "utterly devastated" after his Los Angeles home was destroyed by wildfires earlier this week.

The house was Wonder's main residence, and seemingly contained his most prized possessions. His memorabilia, photos, clothing, furniture and musical instruments are all said to have gone up in smoke.

MusicRadar can only assume that many of the vintage synths and keyboards that Stevie has used throughout his career were among the items destroyed.

The singer has reportedly cancelled all tour dates and other appearances while he deals with the aftermath of the blaze.

Correction: Stevie Wonder's house still standing
