Stevie Wonder - Stevie Wonder Tops Charlie Sheen's Donation To Child Cancer Patient

Stevie Wonder has followed Charlie Sheen's lead by donating $100,000 (£62,500) to help a young girl fighting cancer.

The former Two and a Half Men star showed his generous side earlier this month (Dec12) by handing over $75,000 (£46,600) to a charity set up in honour of 10-year-old Jasmine Faulk, who is suffering from childhood rhabdomyosarcoma, a cancer of the muscle tissue.

Wonder went a step further on Saturday (15Dec12) by bringing the youngster and her father up onstage with him during his show at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. The legendary singer serenaded Faulk with his hit track Isn't She Lovely before handing her a cheque for $100,000.

The youngster gave Wonder a big hug and told him, "I love you Stevie!"

Faulk's father is a police officer who has worked privately for Wonder since 1997, according to Tmz.com. Sheen heard about the child's story from another member of the Hermosa Beach force.
