Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Singer Shawn Mendes cancelled his Brazil gig due to being sick.

The 21-year-old Canadian singer revealed on his Instagram Story on Saturday that he is suffering from laryngitis and a sinus infection and will have to cancel his second concert in Sao Paulo, Brazil, which was set to take place on the same evening.

"Sao Paulo, I'm so sorry to have to tell you this, but today I woke up feeling ill, and went to the doctor, and to find out I have laryngitis and a sinus infection which has caused swelling of my vocal cords. It breaks my heart to do this but my doctors told me I can not perform tonight or it would risk long term damage to my voice.

"I love you all so much and apologise from the bottom of my heart as I wish I could be there on stage tonight. I promise I will make it up to you next time I'm back in South America. Te amo," Mendes wrote.

As of now, the singer is still scheduled to perform in Rio and in Buenos Aires, Argentina next week.
