After playing his 1972 hit song ‘Superstition’, Wonder paused for a while to inform his fans that he is going to have kidney transplant, to prevent further rumors about his health from spreading. He assured fans that “it’s all good” and that he already has a donor, The Guardian reported.
“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. All right?,” Wonder told the crowd.
The 69-year-old multi-awarded singer did not give further details about his condition. No announcement regarding the singer’s schedule following his surgery has been relayed.
According to The Detroit Free Press the singer has been battling “a serious but manageable health issue” and has been going on tour with a medical team to monitor his condition.
During his headlining performance as part of the British Summertime Festival, Wonder did a performance of John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s ‘Imagine’. Celine Dion also performed the same song the night before.
“We’re going to keep singing this song until we all cut the bullshit,” he said after his performance.
Since singing with the record label Motown in 1961, Wonder ha won 25 Grammy Awards and has been been nominated for various categories 74 times.
