As the world continues to wait for the release of D’Angelo’s long-awaited follow-up to 2000's "Voodoo," the singer’s health has taken center stage on his current national tour.

The Chicago Tribune reports that the Grammy Award-winner has canceled his upcoming August 7 show at the city’s House of Blues, in addition to a show dates this week in Minneapolis (August 6) and in San Diego (August 10) “due to a medical emergency.”

A House of Blues executive who spoke to the singer’s agent told the site that his condition is “serious, but he should be OK.”

The news follows the cancellation of two additional dates last week in New York, and Maryland’s Merriweather Post Pavilion.

According to the Pavilion’s Facebook page, the singer was hospitalized on Saturday and replaced on the bill by singer Raheem DeVaughn.

Last year the reclusive crooner made his return to the stage, performing at a number of events including Essence Music Fest, Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, Made In America Festival and the BET Awards, to name a few.
