Carey's Christmas concerts were scheduled for 17 November in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.

It wasn't immediately clear how many shows will be canceled, but her website,, now shows the next show at New York City's Beacon Theatre on November 27.

All other concerts are now on as scheduled, including Chicago on Saturday, November 18.

"I feel like people need to write notes to NBC and beg them to let me come back", Stefani joked.

Fans took over her social media platforms to show their support and send her their well wishes.

Mariah's unfortunate health set back comes as she recently admitted she was surprised by how popular her 1994 Christmas hit "All I Want For Christmas Is You" - which she wrote and produced with Walter Afanasieff - has been, and couldn't wait to play it for her fans during her Christmas tour. "Rest up and get well soon queen", said one.
