Like many other local artists, gospel/pop star Robert Robinson has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help cover the costs of his new recording project “Lullabies from the Heart with Robert Robinson,” due Oct. 8. But he needed a kickstart from his therapist to get this project off the ground because Robinson suffered a “slight stroke” in November.
He was performing at the Fargodome in Fargo, heading back to the stage for the encore. “I lost feeling in the left side of my body. And I fell,” he recalled of the event at a conference for doctors and nurses. “I didn’t pay much attention to it; I thought I was tired.”
