LOS ANGELES, July 7: Stevie Wonder says he will be receiving a kidney transplant this fall.
The 69-year-old music legend made the announcement to concertgoers in England on Saturday. Wonder said he’ll do three more shows and then undergo the surgery in September.
He said he has a donor, adding, “it’s all good,” drawing cheers from the audience. He didn’t want his fans to hear rumors, Wonder said.
