The crowds of tens of thousands cheered and applauded, encouraging Stevie as he made the announcement. Stevie even added in his little speech that he did the concert so to give his love to his fans as well as to thank them for theirs.
Stevie’s health issue forces him for a surgery
His little speech of assurance and information, however, lacked any definite information regarding his disease. Stevie Wonder did not provide any internal information regarding the health issue that forced him for the surgery. Even representatives for Stevie did not immediately turn-up with a response regarding the issue.
The truth about his illness might have stayed hidden, had he not announced it. For his current life was quite active involving umpteen concerts and performances. People could not have guessed that something was wrong with him!!
The owner of more than 2 dozen Grammy Awards won the hearts of his fan once again with his act. Even though the announcement was made with a sober face and severe expressions the smile that broke loose in the last set everything right.
