Stevie Wonder Takes a Knee in Support of America [VIDEO]
Music superstar and Saginaw native Stevie Wonder got down on both knees, in support of America while simultaneously taking a jab at President Donald Trump. Wonder addressed the crowd before his performance at the Global Citizen Festival Saturday.
I didn't come here to preach, but I'm telling you, our spirits must be in the right place.
Although Wonder never mentioned Donald Trump by name, his gesture came just one day after Trump used Twitter to attack NFL players who have protested the National Anthem.
“Tonight, I’m taking a knee for America,” the singer said as he got down on one knee with help from his son, Kwame Morris. “But not just one knee; I’m taking both knees. Both knees in prayer for our planet, our future, our leaders of the world and our globe. Amen.”
