"What needs to happen today not only in this nation, but throughout the world, is that we need to make love great again," Wonder said, playing off of the president's campaign-era slogan, "Make America Great Again."

"Because black lives do matter, because all lives do matter, and if we love God then we know truly it is our love that will make things better," Wonder continued.

Wonder continued, saying that the Queen of Soul was defined by her spirit of wanting to "make love great again" throughout her life. 

Wonder's comments came a little more than two weeks after Franklin died after battling pancreatic cancer.
