NEW YORK (AP) - Singer-songwriter Gavin DeGraw is still hospitalized after being attacked by a group of men on a city street. A statement released Tuesday on his behalf said the 34-year-old entertainer has a concussion, a broken nose, black eyes, cuts and bruises.

Gavin and his family appreciate everyone’s concern at this time,” the statement added.

Police say DeGraw suffered the injuries after he was beaten up by “unknown male attackers” early Sunday morning in the East Village. He was taken to Bellevue Hospital in an ambulance; an investigation is ongoing.

DeGraw has been forced to cancel a planned concert Tuesday in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. He had a slew of other tour dates and appearances, but there’s no information about how those would be affected.

DeGraw has a new album, “Sweeter,” due out in September. He’s probably best known for his hit song, “Chariot.”
