Soul star Angie Stone is recovering after falling on her back while travelling on an airport's escalator.

The BROTHA PT II singer was arriving in New York when the mishap occurred - and she's been taking strong medication so she can continue to perform.

She says, "I was on an escalator at the airport and someone dropped their bag. I wasn't aware of it and it kinda did a bowling pin effect and I flipped on my back. I had to go to the emergency room. I'm on Vicodin right now."

Stone, who is currently on tour with Anthony Hamilton, has vowed to press on with her road show, which will next see her arrive in New Orleans, Louisiana.
