Stevie Wonder has followed in Charlie Sheen’s footsteps by donating money to a little girl battling cancer. It was recently revealed that Charlie wrote a cheque for $75,000 after hearing about ten-year-old Jasmine, who has been diagnosed with Childhood Rhabdomyosarcoma.
TMZ is now reporting that singing legend Stevie is the latest famous face to donate to the fund for Jasmine. Over the weekend, the star was performing at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles when he invited the little girl to join him on stage so he could present her with a $100,000 cheque.
Stevie performed his hit song Isn’t She Lovely for Jasmine, who responded to his grand gesture by giving him a hug.
She then grabbed the mic and shouted, “I love you Stevie!”
Jasmine’s dad, who also joined her on stage, is a Hermosa Beach police officer and is believed to have worked privately for Stevie since the mid ’90s.
Last week it was reported that Charlie had written a cheque to the Hermosa Beach Police Assoc. to add to a fund started to help pay for Jasmine’s treatment.
