Fantasia is resting comfortable after suffering 2nd degree burns while traveling. Her husband, Kendall Taylor, revealed on Instagram over the weekend that his wife had been hospitalized.
“Speaking on behalf of my wife: “She walks as a powerful force in the earth. Impacting everything she touches and encounters. I love her determination and sheer will power to not accept defeat on any level. She complains little, but so sacrifices much! But there are times when our Father intentionally slows us down to reflect and hear from Him. My Wife experienced an accident today causing 2nd degree burns on her arm. 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 for tonight. So please, keep my Queen lifted in prayer, asking our God to heal her rapidly with no last negative affects. Rock Soul won’t be denied, this is simply a delay that will prove to be necessary for what’s to come. We love you all and thank you for your understanding and support!
Since the accident, Fantasia had to cancel her show in Memphis while she is still healing. However, the accident left many folks wondering how did she get burned?
According to the site, “she was dozing on her tour bus Sunday with an aromatherapy vaporizer nearby. She uses it to soothe her vocal cords. We’re told she thinks she rolled over onto the machine’s cord, which caused hot water to spill out on her right forearm. Our sources say Fantasia was alone on the bus when the accident occurred — everyone else was inside the Memphis venue getting ready for the show that night. We’re told the burns were bad, but docs removed the damaged skin and expect her to heal fully … without surgery or permanent scarring.”
Tasia is expected to return to the stage in Los Angeles on Wednesday.
