Stevie Wonder recently shocked a few of his white fans. The legendary artist was performing at London’s ‘British Summer Time Festival,’ when he discussed the Black Lives Matter movement and police brutality. As he narrated through songs from his 1976 album, “Songs In The Key of Life,” Stevie, he pointed out some of the issues that society currently faces. He said,

Stevie ended his thoughts with:
