Singer Carlos Marín, who was part of the Il Divo group, was intubated and in a coma in the Intensive Care Unit of the Royal Manchester Hospital, in England.
According to his label Universal Music, the 53-year-old star was on tour with the group in the UK, but a week ago he started showing discomfort and had to be hospitalized, with no known cause.
“Our dear friend and colleague Carlos is in the hospital. We hope and pray for a speedy recovery”, the group shared from its Twitter account.
Primer Beat Producciones announced that the concert scheduled for December 22 at the Coliseum in A Coruña, Spain, will be postponed to June 15 next year. Tickets already purchased will work for this new date and the period will be open until January 4th for refunds.
Il Divo was founded by music producer Simon Cowell, having imagined that the male lyrical quartet would have a chance to succeed by covering mystical songs.
Carlos Marín joined Il Divo in 2003, after participating in a musical theater project. Together with Switzerland’s Urs Bühler, France’s Sébastien Izambard and America’s David Miller, he has released nine studio albums, since his self-titled 2004 album.
The quartet has sold around 40 million copies worldwide.
