MISIA is currently in the hospital getting treated for hepatitis, forcing the singer to cancel her activities.
In a statement released on her official website, MISIA explained that she had been experiencing poor health recently. She went to her doctor for a check up and was diagnosed with hepatitis, a liver infection which, if left untreated, can progress to more serious conditions.
As a result of the diagnosis, MISIA has been moved to a hospital to get treated for the disease. Despite the hospitalization, the singer assured fans that she is doing fine.
"Fortunately, my health is improving every day thanks to the treat. However, my doctors says that I need to rest for a while," she said.
MISIA was scheduled to perform at the benefit concert "The Unforgettable Day 3.11" in Sendai on March 11. This appearance has been cancelled.
"We should not forget the lessons of the Tohaku disaster...I sincerely pray for the reconstruction of the Tohaku region," she said.
MISIA's other concerts through the end of March have been postponed.
