Stevie Wonder honors Aretha Franklin, John McCain at show

Stevie Wonder honored Aretha Franklin and John McCain at his sold-out Borgata show on Saturday in Atlantic City, NJ.

“This is an emotional time for me as I’m mourning the loss of Aretha, but I’m celebrating with you the greatness of her music,” he told the crowd.

Wonder learned of McCain’s death during the concert, and said of him before singing Billy Joel’s “Just the Way You Are,” “I wanted to see him before he left this planet . . . I didn’t get the chance. He grew to know compassion was not about any political party. It was about loving people for just the way they are. God bless his soul.”

Wonder’s expected to honor Franklin at her funeral this week.
