Prayers Up: Roberta Flack Was Rushed to the Hospital During Her Performance at the Apollo Theater

Roberta Flack’s performance at the Apollo Theater was cut short Friday night when she was rushed to a nearby hospital mid-show.

via TMZ:

Roberta was performing a charity concert for the Jazz Foundation of America when she fell ill. FDNY tells us the ambulance arrived around 8:50 PM, and she was taken to a hospital in Harlem.

We’re told the 81-year-old singer Roberta was able to leave the stage under her own power … before someone called for the ambulance. FDNY says they were responding to a call for a “sick person.”

We’ve got a call in to her rep for an update on her condition. 

Roberta had enormous hits in the 70s and 80s … including “Killing Me Softly,” “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” and “Set the Night to Music.”
