Stevie Wonder reveals he's to undergo kidney surgery

Stevie Wonder has announced he is hitting the pause button on his current tour to undergo a kidney transplant.

The 69-year-old musician made the announcement during his performance at British Summer Time Hyde Park, where he confirmed he'd already found a donor and would perform three more shows before going under the knife in September.

The Grammy award winner told fans as he wrapped up the concert saying he was making the announcement in order to end "rumours" about his health.

"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," he revealed.

He continued: "I'm all good, I'm all good, all good, I have a donor and it's all good.

"I want you to know, I came here to give you my love and thank you for your love. I love you and God bless you."

The legendary singer previously insisted he's always had a positive outlook on life, regardless of the challenges he's faced.

The music icon shared: "I'm always optimistic, but the world isn't. People need to make a jump to a place of positivity but they put it all on one person to make it happen.

"It takes everybody. And the mindset has to be different."

The 'I Just Called to Say I Love You' hitmaker - who has been blind since shortly after his birth - also insisted he's never seen his disability or his race as a barrier to success.

He said: "Do you know, it's funny, but I never thought of being blind as a disadvantage, and I never thought of being black as a disadvantage.

"I am what I am. I love me! And I don't mean that egotistically - I love that God has allowed me to take whatever it was that I had and to make something out of it."
