Singer Marianne Faithfull, Who Battled COVID-19, Reveals Devastating Way She Was Affected by the Virus

Legendary singer Marianne Faithfull is opening up about her battle with coronavirus and the devastating effect the virus had on her health.

The “As Tears Go By” singer was one of the first celebrities to publicly disclose their diagnosis with COVID-19 and she spent weeks in a London hospital.

“I may not be able to sing ever again,” Marianne said in a new interview with The Guardian. “Maybe that’s over. I would be incredibly upset if that was the case, but, on the other hand, I am 74. I don’t feel cursed and I don’t feel invincible. I just feel f–king human.”

Marianne is still hopeful that her singing voice will return.

She said, “But what I do believe in, which gives me hope, I do believe in miracles. You know, the doctor, this really nice National Health doctor, she came to see me and she told me that she didn’t think my lungs would ever recover. And where I finally ended up is: OK, maybe they won’t, but maybe, by a miracle, they will. I don’t know why I believe in miracles. I just do. Maybe I have to, the journey I’ve been on, the things that I’ve put myself through, that I’ve got through so far and I’m OK.”

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.
