Mariah Carey is on the mend!

On Wednesday morning, the singer was rushed to the hospital in New York City after falling ill with a severe case of the flu, TMZ reported.

The star attended the Pier 1 Christmas Pop Up Storybook launch in SoHo Tuesday night and was “the ultimate professional,” says a rep for the event. “She had fallen ill earlier in the day, but participated in the event last night as much as she could.”

A rep for the singer tells PEOPLE that Carey “had been feeling under the weather with the flu over the past few days and was fighting it to the best of her abilities. She is doing well now and will be performing as scheduled this weekend. She thanks her lambs for the continued support and well wishes.”

At the Pier 1 event, Carey mentioned feeling under the weather, but went about her business as usual and talked about her excitement over the holidays.

“I love a white Christmas. I love a snowy Christmas, so Aspen is my go-to. I’m going this year,” Carey told PEOPLE. “It’s a tradition. I’ve been going there a long time.”

As for her dream festive ensemble? “Something sparkly and festive!”
