California hospital after undergoing back surgery earlier this week and
she's thanking fans for their well wishes.
"I am overwhelmed with
the amount of love and caring that has been sent my way from all over
the world," the award-winning actress and singer said in a statement
Minnelli's back injury prevented her from performing most of the year or attending the funeral of Joan Rivers in New York this month. She is expected to make a full recovery.
68-year-old entertainer is one of the few artists to win an Oscar, a
Tony, an Emmy and a Grammy. Perhaps her greatest role was as cabaret
singer Sally Bowles in the film version of "Cabaret."
