Stevie Wonder wants to add more Grammys to his trophy case.

The 55-year-old singer, who has won nearly 20 Grammys during his long career, told a news conference Wednesday: "At this point in time I haven't had enough Grammys."

Wonder said he was teased by composer Henry Mancini, who "won more than 30, I think. ... He would tell me that, at 19, I was just getting started."

He was in Tokyo to promote his latest album, "A Time to Love."

"I would like to leave the world knowing that I brought and left the world lots of love and lots of love songs to sing," he said.

But Wonder said he's as concerned as ever with politics — and the spread of terrorism today.

"There are people who say they serve God," he said. "But they cannot truly serve God because the God I know, the Allah that I know, would not want to kill people."
