Stevie Wonder Calls for Gun Control During Nipsey Hussle Memorial

Stevie Wonder took a moment to call for gun control during the public memorial for rapper Nipsey Hussle on Thursday. “It is a heartbreak to again lose a member of our family,” Wonder told the crowd, noting how he met Hussle through someone “very close” to his wife. “It is a heartbreak because it is so unnecessary. It is so painful to know that we don’t have enough people taking a position that says, ‘Listen we must have stronger gun laws.'” He added, “I’m very happy that in his short life, [Hussle] was able to motivate people and I hope that it motivates you enough to say, ‘Listen, enough of people being killed by guns and violence.’” During the memorial, Wonder also performed a portion of his hit “Rocket Love” and a cover of Eric Clapton's "Tears In Heaven."
