Listen to Austin Mahone on iHeartRadio

Pop singer Austin Mahone is on the mend after an illness forced him to cancel a tour last week. 

The 17-year-old's rep has told that he is now "home from the hospital" and "recovering." 

Austin updated fans briefly on Monday, with a tweet reading "I'm alive" and another adding "Hope I haven't let anyone down." 

The singer was supposed to headline the MTV Artist To Watch tour, but was hospitalized with a triple-digit fever the day it was scheduled to kick off.  It was later revealed that he was suffering from "extreme inflammation" and a blood clot in his throat. 

The tour dates have yet to be rescheduled, but says it won't start until 2014.
