Stevie Wonder Announces He’s Getting a Kidney Transplant

Stevie Wonder paused his set at the British Summer Time Hyde Park concert in London on Saturday to share some health news with fans. The legendary musician told the crowd he will be undergoing kidney surgery this fall, and assured them that he’s “all good.”

According to Entertainment Weekly, after performing "Superstition," Wonder addressed the audience, saying he would be taking a break from his tour. He told the packed house, “So what’s gonna happen is this, I’m going to have surgery, I’m going to have a kidney transplant in September of this year. I’m all good, I’m all good, I’m all good. I have a donor. It’s all good.”

The 69-year-old icon added, “I want you to know I came here to give you my love and to thank you for your love. You ain’t gotta hear no rumors about nothing, I told you what’s up. I’m good. Alright?”

Reports that Wonder has been battling a health issue popped up last week in the Detroit Free Press, but it appears the 25-time Grammy-winning artist is taking control of any “rumors,” and setting the record straight about his condition prior to the operation.
