Kirstin Maldonado Talks About How Pentatonix's Fans Made Them A Success

Kirstin Maldonado stopped by Build Series on Thursday afternoon (February 15) in New York City.

While the singer was there to chat about making her Broadway debut in Kinky Boots with co-star Jake Shears, she also spoke about how the fans made Pentatonix the success it is today.

“We just had a really big and really hard work ethic and that propelled us forward. We never wanted to stop,” Kirstin shared. “We lived in the same apartment complex when we first moved to LA and we had rehearsals every day and worked on music.”

She adds that the group does owe their success to their fans too.

“We have such an amazing fanbase that supports us and loves us,” Kirstin says with a smile. “…We were always meeting in choir room B, arranging ‘Telephone’, and because of that, we have that support system in that community, that family.”

Pentatonix's Kirstin Maldonado Issues Apology After The Group Had To Postpone Their Boston Concert This Week

Pentatonix's Kirstin Maldonado Issues Apology After The Group Had To Postpone Their Boston Concert This Week

Earlier this week, a lot of fans were disappointed that Pentatonix had to postpone their Boston concert because of Kirstin Maldonado‘s sudden illness.

Many were already at the theater and waiting for the show when the announcement came that the show was canceled.

Kirstin issued an apology and explanation last night about the situation:

“I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for their concern and support in regards to my condition last night,” she starts off. “In more than 6 years of performing with Pentatonix, I have never considered not taking the stage. It is the absolute last thing I wanted to do and, until about 4pm yesterday, it wasn’t even something that was on my radar.”

“On Monday, I had seen an ENT just to make sure I was in tip-top shape after getting over a sinus infection, something I regularly do because my vocal health and the performance I give to you guys is very important to me. He told me my vocal cords were healthy and prescribed lots of water, which I’d already diligently been drinking!

“All was seemingly fine until yesterday around our 4:30pm soundcheck when a pain began to develop in my stomach. By 5pm I was unable to keep any food or liquids down. I attempted to tough it out hoping it would pass, but by 6:30 it was clear that it was only getting worse and around 7pm our crew brought a medic to the venue to look at me to see if there was anything we could do to make performing possible.

“At this point they thought perhaps I was suffering from Hyponatremia and would potentially need my stomach pumped, so they made the call for me to go to the hospital. Until last night, I had never been in an ambulance or brought to an emergency room, but that’s where I was headed. I could barely stand, let alone speak, let alone sing or dance, but it still broke my heart to have to leave so many of our fans disappointed.

“I wanted to push through and go through any and every option before cancelling and not just me, but all of the amazing people around me – my bandmates, our crew, the whole Pentatonix team – really did everything they could.

“I was thankfully discharged late last night with what the doctors concluded was a severe – and obviously evil and fast-acting – stomach virus and today I am feeling better every hour!”

The show that was scheduled for Tuesday, will now be held on Friday, December 22nd.

We’re so glad Kirstin is feeling better!
