Stevie Wonder has weighed in on what happened in Dallas after five officers were shot and killed by a sniper last Thursday night.

On Sunday, the 66-year-old legendary performer was at Hyde Park in London. Before he started his show he talked about the recent violence and said it “breaks” his heart that the same issues he dealt with on his album “Songs In The Key of Life” 40 years ago are the same issues and conditions we are dealing with today, according to BBC news.

“I’m not happy that those conditions still exist in the world,” Wonder said. “Tell all the leaders of the world to cut the bull and fix it. We were all made in God’s image. ”

“When you hate someone, you’re hating that image. If I’m blind and I can see it, you can see it too.”

Wonder then told the fans that he does believe all life matters, but said he supports Black Lives Matter, according to another report.

“All life does matter, but the reason that I say black lives matter is because we are the original people of this world,” he said. “So in essence, everyone here has some black in you. You’ve all got some soul in you so stop denying your culture.”
