LONDON — From a ribbon in the sky to a kidney with a bladder. Legendary artist Stevie Wonder has suspended his concert tour to undergo surgery for a kidney transplant in September. The blind vocalist, who’s reportedly on dialysis, disseminated the morbid news Saturday night while performing at England’s Summer Time Hyde Park Music Festival. The crowd was lachrymose initially. But, rest assured, the 69-year-old singer let everybody know he has a donor and, as of now, it’s all good.

“So what’s gonna happen is this: I’m going to have surgery,” Stevie told the audience. “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. I want you to know, I came here to give you my love and to thank you for your love.”

When asked why he chose to convey such melancholic information on stage, Stevie said he wanted to jump ahead of the rumor mill by circulating it himself. Please keep Stevie in your prayers. Not sure if he’s “superstitious” but there’s definitely “writings on the wall.”

  1. Shouldn’t he just die in peace and not steal a healthy kidney from a younger needing it?

  2. Another example of the rich, getting preferential treatment.

  13. American treasure. Good Luck Stevie Wonder. Just this past weekend was listening to rerun of AT 40 (1970) and was thinking how great to have him still with us and what a great treasure he has been for us over the last 35+ yrs.

  14. Who cares…he can afford it. How many people, especially kids, who can’t afford it, has he helped buy kidney transplants….now that would be “News”.

  15. Stevie Wonder can see partially, he is a scam artist.
