One great voice is silent for a few days under doctor’s orders. 65 year old music legend, Elton John, was released from a Los Angeles hospital today after a visit for not feeling well with a respiratory infection. Doctors at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center diagnosed the singer with a serious respiratory infection, and sent him home with antibiotics and ordered a week of bed rest to prevent his condition from worsening. Concerts set for at least three dates in Los Angeles have been canceled as a result.

Elton John began to feel ill last week while performing a Las Vegas show, and his condition only worsened in the last few days until a visit to the hospital became necessary.
