    He was at Red Rocks the other day though in Denver but apparently he was very hoarse that night. Usher showed up to sing Ribbon in the Sky for him.

    I saw many, many great shows at Red Rocks when I was in college. I do hope that Stevie will be alright and starts taking better care of himself.

    I hope so but we know some celebrities don't like to have their health issues displayed on front street...

    I figured he WAS taking care of himself. He cut down weight wise (I think he said it on James Corden's show that he was a vegetarian). Maybe years of high blood pressure? I know that's why Tina Turner had to have surgery.

    I am hearing the Tina Turner is not in good shape at the moment. Her health is failing her .

    Keep in mind Tina is pushing 80, and Stevie is approaching his 70s. I’m also hoping that it’s something being blown out of proportion, if not false altogether. Remember there was some scary rumors about Gladys Knight last year.

    I heard she was doing great. You have to make sure when you hear things, it's official. But after what she went through, no, she's alright. Tina will be 80 in five months.

    Maybe we'll get word from Stevie's people.

    You know what this reminds me of? Little Richard.

    Bootsy Collins posted on Facebook a few years ago that he was in ill health and asked his followers to pray for him.

    Richard's personal manager had to make an announcement that Richard was still alive, healthy and active (while in a wheelchair). He was 83 at the time.

    Here's the video of Patty Jackson discussing Stevie Wonder. She also briefly mentions Tina Turner. Starts at the 35 second mark.

    This is what Snopes posted about Tina:
    https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/is...r-gravely-ill/

    This was as of March 2019 but Tina already mentioned that it was a day to day thing in her book.

    Ok, first of all, if it IS true, to say he hasn't been taking care of himself is ridiculous. Kidney failure can be caused by a number of things, high blood pressure being one of them. Sure, poor eating habits over a long period can also cause it, but we have no idea what might have caused his issues.
    Secondly, again, if it IS true, people can live
    for many years on dialysis, while waiting for a kidney. I, personally, have been in kidney failure for years. I've been on dialysis and on the transfer list for 6 years, so, while we certainly wish him well, let's not assume the outcome just yet.

    Good luck, Stevie.

    Thanks a million for this! I commend you for opening up about your own battle with kidney failure. Iím sure Stevie has been (if true) taking the necessary precautions to say in good health.

    Prayers to you, Stevie, and Tina!

    That is true. It's good he's going under dialysis. He still has two teenage sons and two preteen daughters to raise. I want him to live a long life.

    Thanks so much for sharing the information Marv2 and I will be praying for Stevie Wonder to get a kidney transplant and have a full recovery.

    You are most welcome Motown Eddie.

    I have checked search engines and wonder (pardon the pun) why this is not being reported by any mainstream news sources???... Certainly wish Stevie good health and full recovery if this report is true...

    Could be under wraps as Stevie has some big European concert commitments in a week or so...

    That may well be...but it would be big news that major outlets in news and entertainment would be investigating and reporting on. Stevie's management would not be able to halt any investigating and reporting on this situation. The only source for this story on the entire Google search engine is this thread on Soulful Detroit based on a local radio host... Some employee at some dialysis facility would tell a friend that Stevie is being treated and word would soon get out, even if Stevie tried to hush it up...I certainly hope this is a false story, however, as has been pointed out...this continual treatment still allows people to function in a fairly normal way so long as they have the time (usually requires several hours multiple times a week) and the money to medically deal with it...As far as these ladies seeking 15 nanoseconds of fame (and this thread is likely about it) ... How amateur can you get???...LOL

    For now, this falls in the "fake news" category.

    I went looking and found what Stu found as well.

    Doesn't seem to be. He would've canceled if it was serious.

    Stevie is due here in the UK early next month. I have tried to get some official statement from his people, but all i am being told is that the gigs are due to go ahead as scheduled. Hopefully that means his condition is not as serious as we are fearing.

    He performed at Red Rocks the day before Patti made that announcement. SEEMS FISHY...
