Stevie Wonder has revealed that he's taking a break from performing to undergo a kidney transplant this September. The Motown legend took a moment onstage at London's BST Festival on Saturday (July 6) to break the news to the crowd.   

"I’m all good, I’m all good, all good, I have a donor and it’s all good," he assured fans after informing them of the upcoming surgery. "I want you to know, I came here to give you my love and thank you for your love. You ain’t got to hear no rumors. I told you what’s up. I am good. I love you and God bless you."   

The 69-year-old Wonder said he'll be performing three more shows before going on hiatus to receive the procedure.
