The legendary artist Stevie Wonder, the first musician to join a number of professional athletes taking a knee during the National Anthem last weekend reports the digitalmusicnews.com
“Tonight, I’m taking a knee for America.” Wonder said at the crowd of the Global Citizen Festival in Central Park as he was assisted by his son, Kwame Morris. He added, “But not just one knee. I’m taking both knees.”
This act symbolizes his protest in one with the growing total of an NFL movement after Trump comments against the act of protestation.
Moreover, Wonder stated, “Both knees and prayers for our planet, our future, our leaders of the world, and our globe. I wanted to say that prayer before I serve you my musical meal. All of us are valuable and important and must take care of each other and this planet. If we don’t, we could lose the ultimate video game of life. We should not lose sight that weapons are real and that rhetoric is dangerous. Whether it be from a superpower in North America or a superpower in North Korea. Our global brothers and sisters, I didn’t come here to preach to you. But I’m telling you: Our spirits must be in the right place. Whenever you need to interrupt hate, stand down bigotry, condemn sexism and find love for all of our global brothers and sisters everyday.”
