At this time, we are asking our readers to pray for the latest family news, and please keep the singer in your thoughts and prayers. Many fans in New York were left heartbroken, but understood the acceptable reason and are praying for the best outcome.
On Wednesday, August 29, Lauren Alaina was forced to bow out of her scheduled performance at the Summer Concert Series from the country station 92.5 WBEE in Rochester. WBEE wrote on social media stating that the beloved singer will not be performing.
"Due to a family medical emergency @Lauren_Alaina will not be appearing Wednesday night at Bands at Barnard," the radio station wrote on Twitter.
"There will still be great music with Flint Creek & Tryst. Stop by the WBEE booth and sign the huge card which we will forward onto Lauren and her family."
On WBEE's website later that day, a statement elaborated a touch more on what is expected to come.
"We're working with Lauren's record label to schedule another date for her to come and perform for fans here in Rochester," the statement read.
The "Doin Fine" singer wrote on Twitter apologizing for the cancelation, saying: "I’m really sorry I can’t be there. Love you guys."
At this time, Alaina nor her representatives shared any further information as to the nature of her family medical emergency. However, according to "Taste of Country," noted that on June 30, Alaina shared the news that her stepfather, Sam Ramker, is battling Stage 4 cancer. On Tuesday, an update was provided by Alaina's mother, Kristy:
"Update on Sam! He is currently in ICU due to a infection in his lungs. Today they are going to be draining the fluid. Please keep us in your prayers. Treatment is going well. We just hit a speed bump in the road. Treatment will continue this week as planned. Thanks everyone for all the prayers and donations. Our family is so grateful," the statement read.
Alaina Reaches Out
"God always shines some light in a time of darkness. It’s been a tough week for my family, but this brightened everything up a little. Thank you to all the people who made this nomination possible. You know who you are."
