IL DIVO star Carlos Martin was spotted looking healthy and happy in a social media video just days before he was “coma”.
The singer can be seen chatting with his fans as he sunbathes by the pool in Maspalomas, Gran Canaria, before the final leg of Il Divo’s tour.
Spanish star Carlos, 53 years old, chatted in selfie video as he promoted upcoming shows across the UK, in Southend, Bournemouth and Brighton.
He enthusiastically talked about the performance – then shared a video clip showing the baritone on stage with his bandmates and looking healthy.
“Hello everyone – so here we are at Maspalomas, and tonight is the first day of the tour,” Carlos told his fans before the packed concert.
Carlos then once again took to social media to promote the Brighton show hours before it started on December 4 shortly after the UK meet.
“Here we are in Brighton for our fourth UK Il Divo Christmas tour,” he beamed to his followers. “Beautiful Christmas songs. Don’t miss it!”
Carlos and his bandmates – Urs Bühler, David Miller, and Sébastien Izambard – continued to perform in Bath two days later before he fell ill.
The star is now said to be in a coma after being rushed to hospital in Manchester, leading to all Il Divo shows being postponed until 2022.
Today, his band mates said they were “hoping and praying” for Carlos’ recovery as he remained in a strict observation unit at the Royal Manchester Infirmary.
Il Divo wrote on Twitter: “Our dear friend and teammate, Carlos, is in the hospital. We are hoping and praying for a speedy recovery.”
Spanish newspaper El Espanol revealed that Carlos remained stable despite “oxygen damage”, which resulted in him being admitted to the ICU.
It comes after the group revealed that they will be postponing all future tour dates while Carlos recovers from his mysterious illness.
In a statement, they said: “Unfortunately, due to illness, the remaining dates for Il Divo’s December 2021 UK tour have been postponed to December 2022.
“Il Divo is deeply sorry to their fans, but looks forward to getting back on the road in the new year and looking forward to seeing you all again next Christmas.”
Il Divo, widely recognized for the growing popularity of pop music – or popera – has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide.
They had one show in Lisbon and another in La Coruña Spain, which has been postponed until July 15, 2022.
Baritone Marin has been a member of Il Divo since 2003, the group has sold over 30 million album copies worldwide.
The group pioneered pop opera and their live concerts have sold more than two million tickets worldwide.
Their debut album was a global hit, selling five million copies in less than a year.
