Mal Devisa (aka Deja Carr) has been hospitalized; while the full extent of her illness is unknown, the musician’s mother Nikki Carr has launched a GoFundMe crowdfunding campaign for fans to contribute to her medical expenses. All of Carr’s forthcoming shows have also been cancelled. “I know she has projects coming up with a few people, that she will not be able to make. Due to the severity, I do not know how long she will be in the hospital,” a note from her mother reads. “I am not at liberty to disclose the nature of her illness. I will leave that for Mal to do if she so chooses, (hopefully with a new song).”
The note continues, “If you would like to donate to her expenses you may do so by clicking the link. This post is more about notifying people that Mal Devisa will not be appearing anywhere until further notice, than donations. However we were not prepared for this sudden burden of expense.” Find the GoFundMe here. Devisa’s first full-length album Kiid was released in 2016.
