Grammy nominee Jill Scott, 28, has been hospitalized in Philadelphia with a lung infection, forcing her to miss some initial dates as the opening act on Sting’s current tour. A spokeswoman for the R&B singer — who is one of PEOPLE’s 50 Most Beautiful People of 2001 — said Scott entered the hospital with a 102-degree fever that developed once an allergy turned into a bad cold. Though it is not known when she’ll rejoin the Sting tour, doctors expect her to recover fully, reports the Associated Press.
