Stevie Wonder to Receive Kidney Transplant in September


Stevie Wonder has revealed that he’s taking a break from performing to undergo a kidney transplant this September.

The Motown legend took a moment onstage at London’s BST Festival on Saturday (July 6) to break the news to the crowd.

“I’m all good, I’m all good, all good, I have a donor and it’s all good,” he assured fans after informing them of the upcoming surgery. “I want you to know, I came here to give you my love and thank you for your love. You ain’t got to hear no rumors. I told you what’s up. I am good. I love you and God bless you.”

Wanting to prevent any false reports spreading about his health, Wonder explained that he had decided to reveal the news himself.

“I love you,” Wonder said as he was leaving the stage. “God bless you. And until we get together again, I send you love from up above.”
