Stevie Wonder Tells Fans He’s Going On A Break To Have Kidney Transplant
Stevie Wonder has told fans at his Hyde Park show in central London that he will undergo a kidney transplant later this year (2019).
Speaking to the crowd at his headline slot at the annual BST Hyde Park event, the music icon said he will perform three more shows before taking a break ahead of the procedure planned for September.
“I’m all good, I’m all good, all good, I have a donor and it’s all good.”
He added: “I want you to know, I came here to give you my love and thank you for your love.
“I love you and God bless you,” Wonder told the crowd.
He said he wanted to tell his fans first, before rumours about his health started.
After his announcement, he performed his closing song – the chart-topping Superstition.
