Looks Like Al Jarreau Is Getting Better

The worst is behind the 70-year-old jazz singer, according to a French hospital. But what does that mean for his current tour?


We were worried when we heard that jazz singer Al Jarreau was hospitalized in France with breathing problems and a "worrisome" prognosis, but apparently he is on the mend.

Hospital authorities say Grammy-winning singer Al Jarreau will stay hospitalized in the French city of Marseille for three or four more days.

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 manager says he will undergo tests in Marseille and "hopes to resume his tour at the end of the coming week."

Touring again already? Take it easy there, Al. We want you around for many more "Mornins" to come.
