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…
