Stevie Wonder Tributes John McCain At Atlantic City Show

Stevie Wonder paid tribute to late John McCain while performing on stage in Atlantic City by dedicating Billy Joel’s “Just the Way You Are” to the Republican Senator. The legendary singer came to know about the death of the Vietnam War veteran while singing in front of a sold-out crowd at The Borgata on Saturday. It was the first of Wonder’s two-day stay in the city as part of his summer concert tour, titled “Stevie Wonder Song Party: A Celebration of Life, Love and Music.” After performing Billy Joel’s 1977 hit, Wonder told the crowd: “This song goes out to Sen. John McCain.” “I wanted to see him before he left this planet, but I didn’t see him. I didn’t get the chance. But he grew to know compassion was not about any political party. It was about loving people for just the way they are,” he added. The massive crowd stood in honor of the 81-year-old lawmaker, who died Saturday after a prolonged battle with brain cancer.
