    Victoria Monet has been forced to cancel shows while she deals with her "ongoing health issues"

    The 35-year-old singer had been due to lay a string of dates across the US next month but took to social media on Monday (20.05.24) evening to reveal that she has had to pull out of the performances and is "so sorry" to her fans.


    She wrote on her Instagram Stories: " am gutted to share that I will no longer be able to perform at Governors Ball

    (NYC), Roots Picnic (Philadelphia) or Blavity (Nashville) this June. I am so sorry!! Candidly I have been dealing with some ongoing health issues that have to be addressed right now, but I will be back out there soon, that's a promise! Please know it wasn't an easy call but it's definitely for the best. All other shows are still moving forward as planned. See you soon."

    The 'Moment' singer did not reveal exactly what was wong with her nor did she expand further on in her post but the blow comes after major Grammy-winning success for her

    In February, she was named Best New Artist and tearfully told the audience at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles: "Thank you guys so much. Thank you to the champagne servers of tonight.

    "Thank you to the recording academy, voting members, you guys pressed that button.

    "Thank you to my mom. A single mom raising this really bad girl, thank you so much.

    " I just want to say to everybody who has a dream. I want you to look at this as an example. Thank you God.

    "This award was a 15-year pursuit, I moved to LA in 2009 and I like to liken myself to a plant who was planted, you can look at the music industry as soil and it can be looked at as dirty or a source of nutrients and water.

    "My roots have been growing underneath ground, unseen for so long and I feel like today I'm sprouting, finally above ground so I'd like to thank my team of visionaries who could see through that soil. Rochelle, thanks so much.

    "I'd like to tell a small story, there was a binder I mad to take this really important meeting at a label and I thought I was going to be signed and I was an independent artist with no team but I thought my music would stand for itself but that binder was left collecting dust in an office. Rochelle found that binder and she decided to take a chance and leave that label and be my manager so thank you so much for seeing me."
