Fantasia Barrino was scheduled to perform in Memphis, Tennessee on Sunday, March 5, but had to cancel her show due to an unforeseen injury.

The news was broken via an Instagram post by her team, which was quickly followed by a post from Barrino's husband, Kendall Taylor, who updated his wife's page yesterday with a photo of a bandaged Fantasia lying in a hospital bed.

"My wife experienced an accident today causing 2nd-degree burns on her arm," he wrote. "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."

He asked fans to pray for his queen, but no details on the circumstances surrounding the accident were given. In a strange coincidence, Taylor was in the hospital himself a day before his wife.
