Latin Grammy winner Ramon Ayala is recovering after becoming ill while on stage in South Texas. Manager Roman Pedraza on Friday told KGBT-TV that Ayala has a cold and overexerted himself.

Ayala sang a few songs Thursday night at Brownsville's Sombrero Festival, but then became ill and had to sit down.

Paramedics examined the singer, who was removed on a stretcher and transported by ambulance to Valley Baptist Medical Center in Brownsville.

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

The entertainer was resting and recovering at his home in Hidalgo.
