The 'Marry You' singer posts a message to his fans that the crowd at last night's gig in Rio has helped his health.

Bruno Mars has confessed that he is feeling well again following a food poisoning incident which threatened to cancel his gig in Rio last night (25th January).

The singer took to his Twitter account to reveal that before his gig he was not in great shape and almost didn't make it to the show.

"I'm in bad shape Rio. I got food poising. Were trying everything rite now so I can make this show. I've been waiting 4 this 4 a long time," he tweeted.

The singer did manage to make the show and put on a performance in Brazil, and earlier today (26th January) updated his fans on his current status.

"Im feeling much better thanks to that crowd last night #ObrigadoRio," he tweeted.

Bruno was performing at the Summer Soul Festival and will perform one more show in Brazil on Saturday (28th January).

Meanwhile, the singer was the biggest selling digital artist of 2011 with his singles 'Grenade' and 'Just The Way You Are'.
