LAS VEGAS (AP) — Singer Sean Kingston says he feels blessed to be back on stage after a major Jet Ski accident — and says he's not afraid to get back in the water next time he gets the chance.

The 21-year-old star told reporters Thursday at the Latin Grammys in Las Vegas that he's bounced back from the May 29 crash and is happy to have another chance at life.

Kingston performed at the awards show with Puerto Rican duo Wisin y Yandel.

Kingston said backstage that he didn't understand what was being said at the show, but he called himself a "huge fan of reggaeton," or Spanish hip hop.

"I've dated a few Latin ladies so I understand a little bit, poquito," he said.
