Singer and songwriter Tweet has been hospitalized due to blood clots that were found in both lungs as well as her arms.
Tweet’s boyfriend, Pastor Jamal Bryant of Empowerment Temple in Baltimore, first broke the news about her condition via Instagram, pleading that her fans keep the “Oops (Oh My)” singer lifted in prayer.
It didn’t take long for Tweet’s longtime friend and collaborator Missy Elliott to help spread the word and send out words of acknowledgement. “Sending prayers up for my sis Tweet who has blood clots in both lungs… We are asking for your prayers for healing,” she writes.
Since releasing her breakout album, Southern Hummingbird, in 2002, Tweet has continued delivering soulful tunes to her faithful fan base. She released her latest album, Charlene, in 2016 and also earned writing credits on Solange’s critically acclaimed A Seat At The Table. She’s also been candid about strengthening her relationship with God, telling Vibe, “God is definitely the one to bring me out of some messed up situations and sometimes when I didn’t even want to be here…I had to have God and walk in his will to be able to do it.”
Please keep Ms. Tweet in your thoughts and prayers!
