US singer Stevie Wonder joined Brazil's Gilberto Gil for a massive free Christmas concert on Rio's Copacabana beach attended by half a million people.

Dressed in a golden suit, the blind singer began his set with "What a Wonderful World", then performed hits like "I Just Called to Say I Love You", "You Are the Sunshine of My Life" and, to sing a cover of the late Michael Jackson's "The Way You Make Me Feel."

Up to a million spectators had been initially expected, but police estimates cited in local media put the number at 450,000 to half a million people who braved sweltering temperatures around 40 degrees Celsius on one of the hottest evenings of the year.
