Jhené Aiko halted her performance at Buckhead Theatre in Atlanta on Monday (Sept. 25), after noticing that a fan was in need of medical attention.
Right as Aiko was launching into a performance of “Bed Peace,” the songstress realized that something was wrong. “Let’s hold,” she said. “We gotta make sure everybody is safe and that we’re good in here. Make way for a medic.”
The medics arrived and picked up the fan, who appeared to be suffering through a seizure. They then moved her to the back of the venue, as seen in fan-shot footage from the event.
After pausing for the emergency, Aiko warned fans that the show would feature strobe lights that could sometimes trigger seizures. “I want to make sure everyone is safe,” she said, before continuing the performance.
After the show, Aiko thanked her fans in Atlanta, while wishing the fan well via Twitter. “thank you to everyone in ATL who came out to the #FordFrontRow @billboard event 💚 i appreciate all of the positive energy u guys were giving,” she wrote. “sending healing light to the young lady who got sick at the show… if any of her friends or fam can give me an update i’d appreciate it! 💚.”
