Last night in Des Moines, Iowa – Caroline Williams and Jordan Yates of pureNRG broke the news that they wouldn’t be able to perform due Carolyne Myers illness. Earlier in the day she was rushed to the hospital for some tests and as the day progressed she felt slighty better, but not enough to take to the stage. Caroline and Jordan made up for the bad news by spending plenty of time with fans in the lobby signing autographs and posing for photos during intermission and after the show. Get well Carolyne!!!
