Elektra artist Lil’ Mo met with near tragedy Friday night when leaving a concert she had just performed at San Francisco’s Warfield Theater for local radio station KMEL. The vocalist was exiting a backstage area lined with fans when an unidentified male struck the singer in the head with a bottle. Lil’ Mo was rushed to California Pacific Hospital where she received more than 20 stitches for the head wound.
Currently promoting Lil Mo’s smash single Superwoman Part 2 as well as her much anticipated album, Based On A true Story, (hits stores 6/26), Elektra and Lil’ Mo’s management have canceled all of the singer’s public appearances through June 29 until Doctors can give her a clean bill of health. “Elektra deplores this senseless act of violence,” stated Greg Thompson, Executive General Manager of Elektra. “We hope the perpetrator is caught and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. For this to happen on the eve of the most exciting week of Mo’s career makes us all doubly sad. Everyone at Elektra is praying for a speedy recovery and extends our heartfelt best wishes to Lil’ Mo, who truly is a ‘superwoman’ in our book.”
