AL JARREAU On Observation After Collapse.

By on 26 July, 2010

Jazz star Al Jarreau is reported to be recovering well after being rushed to a hospital while in France (shortly before he was due to perform at a music festival). That said…he will be under the watchful eye of medics for another week at least.

The 70-year-old musician collapsed before he was due to perform at a music festival in Barcelonnette, in the southern French Alps, on Thursday (22nd July 2010). He was taken to a nearby hospital but was airlifted by helicopter to an other in nearby Marseille over the weekend (24th July 2010) after the altitude caused problems with his breathing.

The singer has stabilised since being transferred and his rep insists his health continues to get better. The spokesperson tells the Associated Press:

“The state of his health is improving. The problem is that he wants to get out but doctors plan to keep him here for another few days.”

Get well soon, Al!
