Jordin Sparks Vocal Cord Damage?

Here’s something weird. I posted this announcement from Penn State University in today’s headline thread:

Due to an unfortunate illness, Jordin Sparks has been forced to cancel her show scheduled for this Sunday, April 20, at the Bryce Jordan Center.

Sparks’ doctor has advised the Jordan Center that the former “American Idol” winner cannot perform due to an acute vocal cord hemorrhage condition. Because of the risk of permanent vocal cord damage, Sparks has been ordered to strict vocal rest and will not be able to perform anywhere until her condition improves.

The Jordan Center apologizes for any inconvenience caused by this uncontrollable circumstance.

That doesn’t sound good. She’s also supposed to take part in an Earth Day event in Washington DC Sunday, and she’s supposed to start a tour with Alicia Keys this weekend, but so far there haven’t been any other announcements of cancellations. Vote For the Worst reports that there is more to the story. Hmmm…
