Singer Marianne Faithfull Hospitalized with Coronavirus

Marianne Faithfull, a singer who shot to fame during the British Invasion years, is currently in the hospital while battling coronavirus.

The 73-year-old singer, best known for her song “As Tears Go By,” seemingly contracted the virus from one of her caregivers at home.

Marianne‘s rep told Billboard that she is “stable and responding to treatment.”

Penny Arcade, a longtime friend of Marianne, wrote on Facebook: “Marianne Faithfull is in hospital in London having tested positive for Covid 19. She went in this past Tuesday. Please pray for her! She has withstood and survived so much in her life – including being Marianne Faithful, that to be taken down by a virus would be such a tragedy. I spoke to her last week and she was hiding out from the virus but she has caregivers and someone brought in to her.”

We’re wishing Marianne a quick recovery.
