Stevie Wonder Going On Performance Hiatus For Kidney Transplant

Stevie Wonder will be taking a break from performing to receive a kidney transplant. He shared the update with British Summer Time concertgoers in London Saturday night.

“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.”

He then told fans all is well with him.

“I’m all good, I’m all good, I’m all good. I have a donor, it’s all good. I want you to know, I came here to give you my love and to thank you for your love.”

His announcement came after reports revealed he was suffering a

“serious but manageable health issue.”

One of his close friends also said,

“He’s got some health challenges, but he doesn’t want a big PR thing out of this.”

After speculation swirled around his health, Wonder said,

“You ain’t got to hear no rumors about nothin’, I told you what’s up. I’m good.”

He’s scheduled for three more shows before his break.
