(AP) Johnny Hallyday's producer says the French entertainer famed for his Elvis-like style and gravelly voice has been hospitalized with a severe case of bronchitis.

According to the Sipa news agency, producer Gilbert Coullier said the hospitalization on the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe was a "precautionary measure." The 69-year-old singer was on a summer break from an international tour that is still slated to resume in October.

In a tweet, Hallyday's son David thanked well-wishers and added, "The news is good, which reassures us tremendously."

Hallyday has been popular in France for five decades, bringing his own combination of American culture and French songs to packed concert halls.
