It's been almost two weeks since singer-songwriter Christopher Cross revealed that he was diagnosed with the coronavirus. On Thursday (April 16), the Grammy winner took to social media to give an update on his recovery.

"I want to thank you for your kind words and to let you know how I am doing," he opened.

"After being sick for weeks I slowly started to recover; unfortunately as a consequence of Covid-19 other problems were caused," he continued. "At present I am suffering intense muscle weakness and a temporary paralysis of my legs--I am unable to walk."

He went on to explained that he has begun physical therapy and that "physicians have assured me that I will recover."

"I wanted to let you know my situation, and that I will get past this. I look forward to beginning my 40th Anniversary Tour soon and when I do, I hope to see you all," he concluded.
