After becoming suddenly ill with a viral infection, Jessee Jannounced she will have to cancel her upcoming show at Alnwick Castle in the United Kingdom.

On Friday (July 20), the 24-year-old pop singer took to her Twitter page to share the news writing, "Doctors have advised that rest is crucial for me to fully recover from the virus, so I wont be able to perform at tomorrow's gig at Alnwick Castle.
