Fantasia regretfully canceled a performance in Memphis on Sunday after suffering what her husband says are second-degree burns.

Kendall Taylor shared an Instagram post on Sunday showing the R&B singer laying in a hospital bed with a bandaged arm, but didn’t expound on the incident.

“My wife experienced an accident today causing 2nd degree burns on her arm,” he wrote. “She’s steady asking the Doc ‘Can I perform tonight?’ But we must be wise and realize this isn’t a race, but rather a marathon.”

Taylor also stated, “She walks as a powerful force in the earth. Impacting everything she touches and encounters. I love her determination and sheer will power to not accept defeat on any level. She complains little, but so sacrifices much! But there are times when our Father intentionally slows us down to reflect and hear from Him.”

Speaking on behalf of my wife: "She walks as a powerful force in the earth. Impacting everything she touches and encounters. I love her determination and sheer will power to not accept defeat on any level. She complains little, but so sacrifices much! But there are times when our Father intentionally slows us down to reflect and hear from Him. My Wife experienced an accident today causing 2nd degree burns on her arm. She's steady asking the Doc "Can I perform tonight?" But we must be wise and realize this isn't a race, but rather a marathon. So Memphis, our team is already working to create a means that she can redeem this time with you. She had something truly special planned for tonight. So please, keep my Queen lifted in prayer, asking our God to heal her rapidly with no last negative affects. Rock Soul won't be denied, this is simply a delay that will prove to be necessary for what's to come. We love you all and thank you for your understanding and support! #WeaponsMayForm#NoneShallPropser

Before the update, concertgoers in Tennessee learned Fantasia’s show for Sunday night was called off “due to unexpected health issues.” She is currently touring with Charlie Wilson and Johnny Gill.

“Fantasia lives and breathes to sing and perform, and hates disappointing her fans,” read a statement shared to her Instagram page. “Our sincerest apologies to the city of Memphis.”

The 32-year-old American Idol alumni plans to get back to performing this week.

“Fantasia suffered a minor accident yesterday afternoon and is resting comfortably,” her rep told PEOPLE in a statement. “At this moment, our plan is to resume the tour in Los Angeles on Wednesday at the Microsoft Theater. She thanks all of her fans for their kind messages of love and support, and is looking forward to getting back out on the road.”
