Stevie Wonder On Health After Kidney Transplant: 'I Feel Great'
Stevie Wonder said Tuesday he feels 30 years younger after undergoing a kidney transplant late last year.
“I was blessed with a new kidney,” the 70-year-old musician said during a virtual press conference. “I feel great. My voice feels great.
“I told my daughter Aisha, ‘I’m going to be like five years younger than you now. I’m going from being 70 to being 40.’ I feel like I’m about 40 right now. I’m feeling great.”
At a London concert in July 2019, Wonder addressed rumours about his health. “So, what’s going to happen is this. I’m going to have surgery. I’m going to have a kidney transplant in September of this year,” he told the crowd. "I'm all good, I'm all good, I’m all good. I have a donor, it's all good.”
On Tuesday, Wonder said the transplant surgery actually happened on Dec. 6, 2019.
The singer-songwriter has released two new songs – “Can’t Put It in The Hands of Fate” ft. Rapsody, Cordae, Chika and Busta Rhymes and “Where Is Our Love Song” ft. Gary Clark Jr.
