Multi Grammy Award-winner Stevie Wonder announced to fans during a London concert that he would be having a kidney transplant in September later this year, with a donor already lined up for the procedure.
Sources close to Wonder were cited saying he was fighting ‘a serious but manageable health issue’. Wonder himself wrapped up his London set saying, “You ain’t got to hear no rumors about nothing, I told you what’s up, I’m good.”
“I want you to know, I came here to give you my love and thank you for your love.” – Stevie Wonder
Wonder has been blind since birth, and is said to have learned to play the piano, drums, and harmonica by the age of nine, and releasing his first album in 1961 under the famous Motown record label.
