Latin Grammy winner Ayala falls ill on Texas stage

Latin Grammy winner Ramon Ayala is recovering at home after becoming ill while performing in Texas.

KGBT-TV reports that Ayala sang a few songs at Brownsville's Sombrero Festival Thursday night before having to sit down. Eventually he was taken off stage on a stretcher and taken to a hospital.

Manager Roman Pedraza says Ayala has been suffering from a cold and overexertion.

Pedraza says the singer spent a "few moments" in a hospital, but was released.

The entertainer is recovering at his home in Hidalgo. Doctors have told him to rest for a week.
