Stevie Wonder is taking some time out.
The “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” singer revealed to fans that he has not been so well of late, but is preparing for a medical procedure which could change his life.
During his performance at Barclaycard’s British Summer Time festival in Hyde Park, the 69-year-old told the crowd that he would be undergoing a kidney transplant in September.
“I’m going to be doing three shows then taking a break,” he said. “I’m having surgery. I’m going to have a kidney transplant at the end of September this year. I came here to give you my love and to thank you for yours. You ain’t gotta hear no rumors about us, I’m good.”
Wonder did not reveal the reason for the transplant but did say that a donor for the surgery has already been lined up.
The singer is set to perform three more shows before the big day.
We’re sure that when he is in hospital he’ll have many calls just to say I love you.
