The mysterious incident occurred in Port-au-Prince yesterday, but according to Jean's rep, Cindy Tanenbaum, the singer "is doing well."

Tanenbaum adds that the wound was "superficial."

Today the country goes to the polls for a runoff vote in its presidential election. Haitians are choosing between former first lady Mirlande Manigat and musician Michel Martelly, in the second round of elections.

Final results of the runoff will be released on April 16, according to officials.

Jean has been supporting Haiti via his Yele Haiti Foundation and has offered his aid since the devastating earthquake over a year ago. Jean is supporting Martelly in the election.

Good to know the wound isn't serious... hope Jean gets better soon!
