Fantasia Barrino was forced to cancel a concert in Memphis, TN after suffering what her husband says are second-degree burns in an accident.

A photo posted to the singer’s Instagram account Sunday showed Fantasia in a hospital bed with a bandage around her arm. The caption was written by her husband Kendall Taylor.

“My wife experienced an accident today causing 2nd degree burns on her arm,” Taylor 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.”

Fantasia is currently touring with Charlie Wilson and Johnny Gill.

No further details were given about the accident that caused the burns. However, Fantasia’s IG account also posted a picture on Saturday showing Taylor lying on a hospital bed with Barrino by his side. The caption read in part, “When we walk up out of this Hospital we are ready to fight again.”
