She performed later at the Sands Casino Complex in Bethlehem as scheduled.
The former member of The Supremes connected with her fans through social media in preparation for the show scheduled the following day: “I was involved in a car accident yesterday. I’m going to be a little sore, but it was mostly shocking. I have a very tiny sore bump on my forehead at my hairline. I ask you not to worry. I will see you tonight at the show in Providence.
The 22-year-old female driver of the SUV from New Jersey was booked for traffic violation.
