Weeks of rumors related to kidney failure and other health issues have plagued R&B legend Stevie Wonder as longtime fans and supporters have flooded his social media pages with well wishes, despite previously unconfirmed reports.
Now, the ‘I Wish’ singer wishes to set the record straight and ease fan fears about his condition. Taking a moment onstage during his set at London’s BST Festival on Saturday (July 6), Wonder did confirm the rumors of his kidney problems were true. However, he remains hopeful as he is set to undergo surgery.

“I’m all good, I’m all good, all good, I have a donor and it’s all good,” he reassured fans. “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.”
As revealed in the video, the 69-year-old will take a break from touring and recording while he recuperates from what we are hoping is a successful transplant surgery.
