Salgado said he was feeling well at the moment and further tests would be conducted to determine if he could be released.

He thanked his fans for the prayers and support he has received, and also apologized for having to cancel his Saturday show in New Braunfels.

He said he intended to perform at his shows scheduled for Thursday in Corpus Christi and Saturday in Brownsville.

The Grammy Award-winning artist battled health problems in the past.

In August, Tejanonation.net reported that Salgado collapsed during a concert in New Mexico. 

Salgado has not posted an update on his Facebook page as of Tuesday afternoon.
