The 'Tim McGraw' hitmaker was also due to perform at the Robinhood benefit concert on June 9 along with the likes of Black Eyed Peas, Debbie Harry and Tony Bennett. The concert was forced to be cancelled at the last moment due to stormy weather causing disappointment among both fans and artists.
“I was like 'I get to sing with Fergie in Nyc?!' and then there was rain and lightning and they're like 'It's cancelled' and I was like :-( (sad)," the 21-year-old country singer posted in her Twitter page. However, actor Zach Braff, who was supposed to introduce the performers at the fund raiser seemed to have seen the funny side of this incident. He posted a picture of himself wearing a small suit in Twitter with the message, “Concert in Central Park cancelled for rain. All dressed up and no one to introduce."
After The Black Eyed Peas disappointment over the benefit concert cancellation due to bad weather conditions, Singer Taylor Swift has also expressed her disappointment as she had wanted to sing with Fergie.
