Voice and Idol Alum, Jamar Rogers, Intensive Care After Lung Infection

The Voice Season 2 finalist, Jamar Rogers is in intensive care in an L.A. hospital after suffering a lung infection, reports TMZ. Jamar is HIV positive.

TMZ spoke with Jamar’s rep who tells us … the 31-year-old was admitted to the hospital on September 3rd at the urging of his manager.

But the rep says Jamar’s health took a turn for the worse … and on Monday he was listed in critical condition.

Jamar’s rep tells us several friends and family members have reached out to the singer — including his former “Voice” coach CeeLo Green.

We’re told doctors expect Jamar to remain hospitalized for at least another week or so.

The singer also auditioned for American Idol, making it to the Hollywood round in 2009 with his best friend Danny Gokey.

Interestingly, Jamar did not reveal his HIV status to Idol producers. Idol never even mentioned his struggles with drug addiction. But both became central to Jamars Voice backstory.

Get well soon, Jamar.
