Stevie Wonder will take a break from the stage to take care of his health. The legendary 69-year-old singer revealed during a performance on July 06 in London during his British Summer Time Hyde Park festival.


According to Wonder, he will undergo a kidney transplant in September of this year. The singer said that he is well and that he already has a donor, and he said he is giving the news live so there are no “rumors”.

“So what’s going to happen is this: I’m going through surgery. I’m going to do a kidney transplant in September this year. You don’t need to hear rumors about anything; I’m already telling you what’s going on – I’m fine. I’m very well. I want you to know that I came here to offer you my love and to thank you for your love.”
