Singer reveals medical diagnosis

It was later discovered that the up and coming singer had been diagnosed with vasovagal syncope in the seventh grade. Brownlee explained that it was a heart condition that caused her “to react to stress differently than other people, and it could cause a seizure."

After coming back a few hours later to perform, Perry was moved to tears as Brownlee made her way off the stage.
