Although her All I Want For Christmas shows were announced big, Mariah Carey had to cancel the first shows because of a respiratory infection.
The singer posted a message on Twitter, in which she gave text and explanation: “Just as the Christmas season arrives, I have my first” gift. “Because of the flu I had, I also suffered a respiratory infection. I find nothing more beautiful than Christmas and that I am very much looking forward to my shows, but now I really have to listen to my doctor, and I will not act again until he is allowed to. “

Despite canceling a number of shows, Carey launched the video of her new Christmas single The Star. She did this exclusively at Entertainment Tonight. The song is the title song of the eponymous cartoon, which tells the Christmas story from the perspective of animals. Among others, Oprah Winfrey and Kelly Clarkson speak the voices of the animals.

Which shows the singer has to cancel exactly is not known. At the beginning of December she is in Europe three times: on December 9 in Paris, December 10 in Manchester and December 11 in London. Whether these shows are canceled is not known.
