During this terrible time, we are keeping singer Jessie J in our prayers. She revealed that she made the decision to have a kid on her own and that she was looking forward to sharing the news on stage at her LA event on Wednesday. “Yesterday morning I was laughing with a friend saying’seriously though, how am I going to get through my gig in LA tomorrow night without telling the entire audience I am pregnant?’ By yesterday afternoon I was dreading the thought of getting through the gig without breaking down…After g,” she wrote.
Despite her disappointment, Jessie stated her desire to perform at her scheduled event. “What I do know is that I want to sing tonight,” she said. “I’m singing tonight not to dodge the sadness or the process, but because I know it will help me,” she continued. I’ve only done two gigs in the last two years, and my spirit is in desperate need of rest. Today, even more so. I’m sure some people will think she should just call it off. But there is one thing on which I am certain right now. “I started singing for joy, to feed my soul, and self-love therapy when I was young, and that hasn’t changed, and I have to process this my way,” Jessie said, adding, “I may crack fewer jokes, but my heart will be in the room.” We are sending love and positive energy to Jessie during this time.
