Mariah Carey cancels shows due to throat infection

If all you want for Christmas is to hear Mariah Carey sing "All I Want for Christmas Is You", well, your wish won't come true in Upstate New York.

She wrote: "Lambs! Just in time for the holiday gift-giving season, it seems I've received a present of my own; a lovely upper respiratory infection after last week's flu".

Mariah Carey was set to bring some yuletide glee on her "All I Want for Christmas Is You" tour but unfortunately had to postpone the trek.

As of the time of writing, the future of her November 20 show at Sands Bethlehem Events Center in Pennsylvania remains to be confirmed.

Her tour was meant to begin this Friday in Ontario, but her first date will now be November 27 in New York City.

Fans were quick to send get well soon wishes to the singer but a few were quite upset by the news. The singer did not say when she would be taking to the stage-or if she would be stopping in NY at all. Her parents allow her to babysit her uncle's rowdy dog to see if she would be able to take care of one herself.

While she may be feeling under the weather, the 47-year-old is already in the holiday spirit.

Mariah Carey's holiday show at the Borgata has been cancelled due to illness, according to Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa. The movie was made available on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital on Tuesday, Nov. 14.
