Stevie Wonder is renown for his legendary music as well his unwavering quest to make the world a better place.
The 67-year-old re-affirmed the latter in a major way at the 2017 Global Citizens Festival Saturday night when he took to both knees before performing.
His reasoning? To pray for America, the state of the planet, and the leaders steering it.
The action is significant on many fronts, most especially the fact it comes on the heels of the drama surrounding Colin Kaepernick‘s race protest in the NFL.
Watch Stevie make the boldest of statements below…
