Carey fell ill earlier this week after appearing at Pier 1’s pop-up store in New York on Tuesday night. TMZ reported she went to the hospital following the event to receive treatment for flu-like symptoms.

Her next performances include Hot 97’s Hot for the Holidays show at Newark’s Prudential Center on Saturday and her five-day holiday run at New York City’s Beacon Theater, which begins next week.
