Mexican singer Juan Gabriel is in "very stable condition" after being hospitalized with pneumonia in Las Vegas on Monday. 

The legendary singer canceled a set of shows at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles on April 16 and 17 and at SAP Center in San Jose on April 19 because of his illness. The showman has taken to social media to inform his fans that the show will go on, and new performances are being scheduled for May. 

"There is no better medicine that the beautiful wishes from so many loved ones," Gabriel last wrote on his Twitter account. "All that you wish for me I want returned to you."

The 64-year-old star was admitted to an intensive care unit after performing in Las Vegas on Sunday. According to his publicist, he had a fever and congestion and was taken to Southern Hills Hospital.

Wow -- we're so thankful he's feeling better! Sending all our good wishes his way.
