Stevie Wonder is still not one to cower while facing injustice. Yesterday (Sept. 23), the music legend and icon took a knee during his headlining set at the Global Citizen Festival in NYC. 

Unless you’ve been under a rock, you’ve heard about Donald Trump insulting NFL players for taking a knee during the National Anthem to protest racial injustice.

While on stage, the “Superstition” singer said “Tonight, I’m taking a knee for America” as he got down on one knee.

But then he got down on both, adding, “I’m taking both knees. Both knees in prayer for our planet, our future, our leaders of the world, and our globe, Amen. I wanted to say that prayer before I serve you my musical meal.”

Stevie Wonder is a national treasure, he must be protected at all costs.
