Stevie Wonder has donated $100,000 to help a little girl fight cancer
The soul legend called 10-year-old Jasmine Faulk up on stage and presented her with a giant cheque while he was performing at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles last Saturday (15.12.12).
Stevie then serenaded Jasmine - who is battling an aggressive form of paediatric cancer known called Alveoler Rhabdomyosarcoma, which affects muscle tissue - with a heartfelt rendition of `Isn`t She Lovely`, her favourite Stevie song.
The delighted girl grabbed the microphone and shouted, "I love you Stevie!", before giving him a big hug.
Jasmine`s father, a Hermosa Beach police officer, has been privately employed by Stevie since 1997.
A post on Jasmine`s blog jasminefaulk.com - which was created by her uncle - thanked the 62-year-old musician for his generosity and his amazing gesture.
The online entry read: "She (Jasmine) attended StevieWonder`s 17th Annual House Full of Toys Concert that her daddy works as security and not only did she enjoy the show as always, she was a part of it! At one point during the show StevieWonder called her up on stage, told her story, and sang her favourite song of his, `ISN`T SHE LOVELY`. He then ended by so kindly giving her foundation an incredible donation!!! (sic)"
Last week, `Anger Management` star Charlie Sheen donated $75,000 to Jasmine`s cancer fund last week after learning about her tragic story through his stunt double Eddie Braun, who had donated $25,000 himself.
The father of five was touched by her courage after meeting her police officer dad, telling him: "No parent should have to watch their kid go through that."
Charlie subsequently wrote a generous cheque for the police department`s fund to raise money for Jasmine, who needs over a year of expensive medical treatments, including chemotherapy and radiation.
