Roberta Flack is recovering after she was rushed to the hospital during an event at the Apollo Theater in New York on Friday night (April 20.) Flack was scheduled to receive an award at the charity concert for the Jazz Foundation of America when she fell ill. The 81-year-old complained of dizziness before receiving her honor, and because of her age and previous stroke, her handlers felt the need to call the paramedics. Paramedics arrived around 8:50PM after receiving the call and Flack was immediately rushed to a hospital in Harlem. A representative for the singer said she has checked out of the hospital, however, doctors are still running tests to determine why she fell ill during the event.
