Rising Tejano singer Devin Banda suffered a seizure on Tuesday and was hospitalized for testing, according to reports.

The 20-year-old singer’s mother, Yoli Romo, announced the news via Facebook.

“Devin suffered another seizure,” Romo posted. “It had been over a year since her last and we sure had hoped she had somehow outgrown them. She is in the hospital for testing.”

*UPDATE: Banda has been released from the hospital and will be seeing a neurologist for further review, according to Romo.

“Thank you all so much. Your love and support you have shown is incredible,” Romo posted on Facebook late Tuesday night. “I have shared your Love and Messages with her. Thank you so very much. I can’t tell you how much your love and beautiful messages mean to us. God Bless.”

The 2012 Tejano Idol runner-up began having seizures at the age of 16 and no explanation or diagnosis was ever found. Devin was taken to Santa Rosa hospital in San Antonio where she was treated and released after another episode on Tuesday.

Banda was recently added to the Warbucks Music Group talent roster and announced her engagement to La Mafia guitarist Viktor Pacheko in September.

“Asking for your prayers for my baby girl,” Romo added. “Thank you all in advance.”

Tejano Nation sends our prayers for Banda, her family and fans.  Stay tuned for updates on Banda’s condition.
