The diva, recovering from a back operation, has called off a tour of Latin America.

Here’s what she is telling disappointed fans in Peru:

To my friends, followers and all the music lovers of Lima, I deeply regret asking your kind understanding in my need to postpone my visit to your historic National Theater and its incredible city. arts in Lima and its devout musical audience.I expected with much anticipation and joy to arrive and sing for you.

Thank you for allowing me now the time, which is required, to recover completely from an uncomfortable problem in my back. Physical therapy works wonders and I hope I can offer my greetings to you, very soon.
