Please join me in sending up prayers for August Alsina.

The singer was hospitalized after he woke up one morning and said he wasn’t able to walk or feel his legs due to nerve damage throughout his body.

August shared a video from his hospital bed offering an update on his health along after he missed his Essence Festival performance.

The caption read:

Hiiii guys!! ? It’s me, being my most awesome, weirdly great self. ??‍♂️I’m here with the stitch ? & to also apologize for not being able to make the essence fest gig last night.
