Singer Al Jarreau Cancels Concert Due to Sickness

Singer Al Jarreau

My thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Al Jarreau today — the legendary singer had to cancel a concert this evening in Escondido, California.

According to celebrity website Thirty Mile Zone

, Mr. Jarreau was scheduled to perform at The Centre at Lexus Escondido, but the concert hall said the singer would not be performing because he was ill. Also, a source close to the situation told TMZ he was taken to the hospital, but the concert hall would not confirm.

The entire concert was not canceled — George Duke, who is also on the bill, is still scheduled to perform.

Mr. Jarreau is now 72, has won 6 Grammys, including one was recent as 2007. He was  nominated for 12 more Grammys.

I’ll keep you updated here. Mr. Jarreau is a friend and I’m proud to say his very first acting role was in my first film! God Bless him — a warm-hearted spirit…
