Adele had a vocal cord haemorrhage. This condition is caused by the excessive use of the voice. The complications of vocal cord haemorrhage are inflammation and nodules. Although the surgery is not dangerous, and other singers like Elton John have recovered from it, Adele will need to rest her voice for a while.
“It is with deep regret that Adele has been forced to cancel her remaining live dates and promotional appearances in 2011. She is to undergo surgery to alleviate the current issues with her throat, and a full recovery is expected,” the statement reads. “As a result, doctors have ordered her to rest her voice and completely recuperate before looking to schedule any work commitments.”
“Singing is literally my life … I have great confidence in believing you know how much this upsets me, how seriously I take it. Wanting to do something so bad and not being able to is the most frustrating thing as I’m sure you know,” she wrote in a message to her fans. “My voice is weak and I need to build it back up. I’m gonna be starting up vocal rehab and start building my overall stamina in my voice, body and mind.”
Columbia Records announced Friday that the “Rolling in the Deep” singer will have surgery “to alleviate the current issues with her throat.” A full recovery is expected.
Earlier this month, the 23-year-old canceled a U.S. concert run due to a hemorrhage in her vocal chord; she also canceled concerts in June due to laryngitis.
The statement said that doctors have ordered the Grammy winner to rest her voice and “completely recuperate before looking to schedule any work commitments.”
Adele’s “21″ is the best-selling CD of the year in the United States; it’s sold over 4 million units.
