Fantasia was hospitalized Sunday evening after suffering second-degree burns. Fantasia’s husband, Kendall Taylor, posted the news to the singer’s Instagram account and showed her in a hospital bed with a bandage covering her arm.


“My wife experienced an accident today causing 2nd degree burns on her arm,” Taylor wrote on Instagram. “She’s steady asking the Doc ‘Can I perform tonight?’ But we must be wise and realize this isn’t a race, but rather a marathon. So Memphis, our team is already working to create a means that she can redeem this time with you. She had something truly special planned.”


Because of the injury, Fantasia had to cancel her appearance at a Memphis, Tenn., show with Charlie Wilson and Johnny Gill.

Coincidentally, on Saturday, Fantasia’s husband was also hospitalized—this because of an undisclosed issue.

Bye, Kinja! It's been fun (occasionally).
