Fantasia Barrino BURNED

Monday, March 06, 2017
American Idol Alumni, Fantasia Barrino, has been in a horrible accident. The 32-year-old singer was burned in her sleep right before she was scheduled to take the stage in Memphis, Tennessee.

Fantasia is currently on tour with Charlie Wilson and Johnny Gill. The vocalist decided to take a nap before she hit the stage in her tour bus when she suffered second-degree burns on her arm by apparently knocking over the scalding hot water from her vaporizer, that she uses for her vocal cords, in her sleep. Ouch.

Fantasia was alone at the time but was then rushed to the hospital where doctors removed the damaged skin. The doctors expect her to heal fully without surgery or scarring according to TMZ. The singer's husband took to Instagram to post a photo with a loving caption that read:

"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!


Fantasia will resume her performances on Wednesday in Los Angeles. We pray for her speedy recovery!
