Oh no! Mariah Carey just announced that she is canceling the first few performances of her upcoming Christmas tour due to an illness.

Unfortunately, Carey has been diagnosed with a respiratory illness and has been ordered to rest by her doctors.

In a post on her Twitter account, the music star explained that she loves the holiday season and is super bummed about having to cancel the first few shows.

It’s unclear at this time when the tour will kick off. Originally, it was slated to start on November 17 in Ontario.

Get well soon, Mariah!
