Al Jarreau discharged from hospital

Al Jarreau has been discharged from hospital more than a week after he was admitted with breathing problems.

The 70-year-old Grammy Award winner was placed in intensive care on July 23 after suffering breathing problems in the Alps and was later moved by helicopter to La Timone hospital in Marseille.

The incident forced the singer to cancel several dates on his European concert tour.

Jean-Louis Bonnet, chief of the cardiology unit at La Timone hospital, said Jarreau wants to continue with his tour.

"He wants to return to the stage and see his fans," Bonnet said, adding that he advised Jarreau not to push himself too hard.

Jarreau has won Grammys in jazz, pop and R&B categories.
