Jordin's Vocal Troubles

You’ve probably heard by now that Jordin Sparks had to withdraw from Alicia Keys’ tour because of a vocal ailment.

Officials from Penn State University where Jordin was scheduled to perform Sunday called it “an acute vocal cord hemorrhage.” Some reports called the injury career-threatening.

Jordin’s spokesperson, though, says that she’s expected to return to the Keys tour in May. All of her April events, however, have been canceled.
