With all the political tumoil going on in America and the latest remarks from Donald Trump that have the entire NBA and NFL responding and calling him out for his comments, Stevie Wonder decided to to take knee for America.  

 

“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,” the 67-year-old singer said during a short speech. “I’m taking a knee for America — not just one knee, but both knees in prayer for our planet, our future, and leaders of our world.” He also encouraged the crowd to “stand down bigotry” and “condemn sexism” while adding “It is only through life we can make life happen through ourselves and each other.”
