The legendary Stevie Wonder continues traveling with a team of doctors as he battles a serious health condition. He took time during he set last night at the British Summer Time Hyde Park Music Festival in England to update fans on his health status.
“So what’s gonna happen is this … I’m going to have surgery. I’m going to have a kidney transplant in September of this year. You ain’t got to hear no rumors about nothing … I told you what’s up — I’m good.”
And Stevie got rousing cheers and applause when he told the crowd that he already has a donor.
“I’m all good, I’m all good, I’m all good. I have a donor, it’s all good,” he said. “I want you to know I came here to give you my love and to thank you for your love.”
BBC News North America Correspondent Aleem Maqbool, and other media in the crowd captured the moment on video:

News first broke last week that the iconic singer/songwriter was battling illness. Initial reports said that he was hoping that one of his children would be donating a kidney.
