Christopher Cross has revealed he's suffered temporary paralysis in his legs. In a message on Facebook, the Grammy winner spoke frankly about his battle with COVID-19.
Cross' post reads in part:
“I want to thank you for your kind words and to let you know how I am doing. After being sick for weeks I slowly started to recover; unfortunately as a consequence of Covid-19 other problems were caused. At present I am suffering intense muscle weakness and a temporary paralysis of my legs — I am unable to walk. . . physicians have assured me that I will recover. I wanted to let you know my situation, and that I will get past this. I look forward to beginning my 40th Anniversary Tour soon and when I do, I hope to see you all.”
Christopher Cross is best remembered for his early '80s hits such as “Sailing,” “Ride Like The Wind,” and “Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do).” Between 1980 and 1983, Cross scored eight Top 40 hits, and won the Grammy for Best New Artist in 1980.
