Arizona Senator and former GOP presidential candidate John McCain succumbed to cancer Saturday. And soon after, Condolences and tributes poured in from every corner of the entertainment world.
Stevie Wonder was onstage when he got the news. He was playing to a sold-out crowd at The Borgata in Atlantic City and dedicated Billy Joel’s “Just the Way You Are” to the late politician and said, “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 then solicited the crowd to send his family love.
