Mal Devisa released her debut album Kiid last year (it's great and her live show is even better), and she's currently planning a followup. Sadly, she's fallen ill and it's serious. Her mother, Nikki Carr, launched a GoFundme to help raise money for Mal's medical expenses. Nikki's message reads:

Hi, I'm Nikki Carr, Mal's Mom.

Just when she's making moves to release her next album. Just when she's in discussions about her first European tour. Deja, has fallen ill and has been hospitalized. I know she has projects coming up with a few people, that she will not be able to make. Due to the severity, I do not know how long she will be in the hospital. I am not at liberty to disclose the nature of her illness. i will leave that for Mal to do if she so chooses, (hopefully with a new song). I see many people have been reaching out to her to no avail. I felt it would be faster to just make a PSA on her behalf than to hit each individual separately.

If you are a praying person, it has been proven that prayer works. I ask that you pray for her quick recovery with as little sufferance as possible. She has so much in store for music! No music has come from her room for days now, making her absence louder than the amp on high. I have faith that she will come through this BETTER than new! Stronger than ever! Ready to take the stage and leave us all in awe!
Thanks in advance for you prayers.

If you would like to donate to her expenses you may do so by clicking the link. This post is more about notifying people that Mal Devisa will not be appearing anywhere until further notice, than donations. However we were not prepared for this sudden burden of expense.

Thank you for ALWAYS showing my daughter and her music so much love all of these years.

As the quote points out, all of Mal's upcoming shows are cancelled. We hope you get well soon, Mal!

Earlier this year, Mal contributed vocals to the new Show Me the Body mixtape.
