Praying For Mr. Al Jarreau

U.S. jazz singer Al Jarreau was in a critical condition in hospital in France on Friday after collapsing on stage the previous evening, hospital sources said.

The 70-year-old singer collapsed during a concert in Barcelonnette in the southeast of France, and was suffering from respiratory problems.

“He was rushed to hospital … his condition is critical. He’s in intensive care,” said Maurice Marchetti, deputy head of the hospital at Gap.
“He is still conscious but slightly drowsy because of the medication and the breathing apparatus.”

The Marseille Hospital Authority said Sunday that Jarreau is getting better and in good spirits but will stay in La Timone hospital for monitoring.

Jarreau’s managers says he will undergo tests in Marseille and “hopes to resume his tour at the end of the coming week.”

We’re praying for your recovery Mr. Al Jarreau.
