Over the weekend at a performance in New York’s Central Park, multiple Grammy Award Winning Artist Stevie Wonder took a knee in solidarity with former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick at the 2017 Global Citizen Festival.
He said, “Tonight, I’m taking a knee for America.” Wonder dropped to one knee first and then the other. “Not just one knee, but both knees in prayer for our planet, our future, and leaders of our world.” He added, “Our global brothers and sisters, I didn’t come here to preach, but I’m telling you, our spirits must be in the right place all the time.”
Wonder if President Trump will come after one of music’s greatest treasures? Let’s hope not.
