Beloved Asheville singer Kat Williams is recovering after undergoing a kidney transplant, family members say.

Patrice Boudreaux, Williams' wife, said the singer underwent surgery on Thursday and is recovering at Duke.

"I met with the dr (sic) and he is very pleased with the results!" Boudreaux wrote on Williams' caringbridge.org page.

The community rallied behind Williams after she was diagnosed with stage five kidney disease in 2015.
