Stevie Wonder gives fans health update after kidney transplant: ‘My voice feels great’

Stevie Wonder assured fans that he’s in good health after rumors to the contrary swirled. The 70-year-old spoke during a virtual press conference Tuesday to promote the release of two new tracks, “Where Is Our Love Song” and “Can’t Put It In The Hands of Fate.” He took a moment to address his health and to let his fans know that he’s OK after being “blessed with a new kidney” last December.“Since I have been released from the hospital, the nurses have made sure I’ve taken my medicine on time and I’m going to do it for as long as I have to, even if it is the rest of my life. I feel great. My voice feels great,” he said according to the Associated Press. “I feel like I’m about 40 right now and I just thank everyone for the prayers and the love.”He went on to assure his fans that he would let them know if there was anything to worry about, urging them not to listen to rumors.STEVIE WONDER TEARFULLY RESPONDS TO BREONNA TAYLOR INDICTMENT IN MONOLOGUE ABOUT SOCIAL UNREST: ‘WHY SO LONG?’“And for all of the people that have been listening to these rumors, listen, if I’m feeling some kind of way, I’ll let you know,” he added. “We don’t want to have misinformation.

I love you and God bless you.”Wonder dropped the new tracks, which he also announced would be released through his new label So What the Fuss Music, distributed through Universal Music Group’s Republic Records (Wonder was signed to Motown Records for the majority of his career).
