THE family of J Capri said the singjay is showing signs of improvement though she remains in an induced coma.

J Capri, whose given name is Jordan Phillips, is currently at the University Hospital of the West Indies. She was admitted there following an early-morning auto accident along Barbican Road in St Andrew Sunday.

Speaking with the Jamaica Observer yesterday, her father Kenneth Phillips said, "She is going to have some good and bad days...she had a really rough night last night as she was passing too much urine. Her blood count had decreased again but she is back on the recovery path. She is a fighter. Her vital signs and breathing is good."

In addition to head trauma, J Capri suffered significant blood loss. Friends and well-wishers have donated blood to assist with her recovery.

"We are really grateful for all those persons who assisted. While her blood count is increasing she is still in need of more blood so I am appealing to persons to make a donation please," said Phillips.

He expressed appreciation to the gentleman who took his daughter to the hospital and contacted her family.

"I am thankful, he gave us all her personal belongings and took her to the hospital. Her being alive today is nothing short of a miracle and his actions contributed a lot."

J Capri is best known for songs like Whine and Kotch (featuring Charlie Blacks), Pull Up to Mi Bumpa (with Konshens) and Reverse It.
