Stevie Wonder links Aretha Franklin’s cancer to ‘global warming’
Stevie Wonder visited the ailing star days before she died and said that at that point she was unable to speak.
“We have to celebrate her life and continue the legacy by letting people of all the various genres hear the music that influenced us all,” Wonder told CBS This Morning’.
Wonder drew a line between the increase of cancer and the ignorance of global warming. “I just feel that all these various diseases that we have and all that is happening in the world in part is because there are those who don’t believe in global warming, don’t believe that what we do affects the world,” he said. “What we eat affects the world and affects us. I just hope that people will grow up out of the foolishness and know that we all, by how we think, how we view, how we treat others, we will never unlock the key until we truly let go of the hatred, the bigotry, the evilness, the selfishness. We do that and we can unlock some of those things that keep us in this place”.
