Stevie Wonder interrupts concert to 'take a knee' for America

On Saturday evening, Donald Trump launched a sensational attack on NFL players who kneeled during the national anthem, labelling them "sons of bitches". But not just one knee.

But one knee wasn't enough for Wonder, who then upped the ante by dropping to both knees and praying for "our planet, our future, our leaders of the world, and our globe".

Appearing in Central Park in NY on Saturday night, Wonder drew tumultuous applause as he made his stand (or rather kneel) on the stage. "But not just one knee, I'm taking both knees".

Today (Sept. 24), 15 new NFL players are planning to kneel or raise a fist during the national anthem in protest of racial injustice in the wake of President Trump's remarks.

National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell called Trump's comments "divisive" in a statement tweeted yesterday.

Wonder also spoke out in April this year while accepting the "Key of Life" award in Los Angeles, saying when people hate each other over their sexual preference, religion or skin color it is both ignorant and stupid.

"We must take care of each other, and this planet", Wonder said. "If we don't, we could lose the ultimate video game of life", Wonder said, referencing an exchange of insults between Trump and Korea's Kim Jong Un. "Whether it be from a superpower in North America or a superpower in North Korea".

The singer added that the weapons are real, while the current "rhetoric is risky".

Among musicians scheduled to take to the stage was veteran singer-songwriter Stevie Wonder, who also took the opportunity of his set to make a political statement.

"I didn't come here to preach, but I'm telling you: our spirits must be in the right place", Wonder said, kneeling with his son Kwame Morris.
