Just did a google & found this...


American blues singer ETTA JAMES has been hospitalised in Los Angeles after suffering complications from abdominal surgery. The Pushover star, 69, underwent surgery on her abdomen last month (Jun07), but was forced to admit herself into the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Wednesday (25Jul07) after experiencing pain in her stomach area. James is now in a stable condition but her bad health has meant she has had to pull out of her current tour with soul veteran Al Green, which started in Florida on Tuesday (24Jul07). He manager Lupe De Leon says, "If it had been left solely up to her, she would have checked herself out of the hospital and started the tour regardless of her delicate health. "However, her doctor advised that were she to do so, it would put her at very great risk." James has been replaced by soul legend Chaka Khan on the Al Green tour.
