Hit singer Adele has today assured her fans that she is well on the road to recovery after undergoing throat surgery; a nightmare for any singer.
It’s been a difficult few months for Adele, who has been suffering with throat problems for a while and recently had to resort to surgery to remove a haemorrhaged vocal chord.
Adele is not the only vocalist to have been plagued with this condition; Julie Andrews and Aerosmith’s Steve Tyler have both undergone the same surgery. It has been confirmed that Adele flew to Boston to undergo the treatment, carried out by the well renowned Dr Steven Zeitels who is said to be one of the best vocal surgeons in the U.S.
This complication has resulted in Adele having to cancel her sell out U.K and North American tour.
The ‘Someone Like You’ singer posted the following message to her fans via her official website: ‘I’m doing really well, on the mend, super happy, relaxed and very positive with it all…Thank you for all your positive thoughts and get well wishes.’
It is without a doubt that 2011 has been an extremely eventful year for the young singer. Her second album, 21, is the best selling album of the year in both the U.K and the States. She has broken countless records, and touched millions of people across the world with her soulful voice and amazing self-penned lyrics.
She has, without a doubt, made a profound impact on the music industry; four of her songs have already been given the glee treatment with the recent mash-up of Rumour Has It and Someone Like You currently number one in the iTunes charts.
In order to preserve her voice, and prevent further damage, the 23 year-old has resigned herself into giving up smoking; an activity she once described as her ‘favourite hobby’. She revealed that during her recovery time she has been writing material for a third album; a record that she promised would be more stripped back and intimate than the first two.
Adele took to her blog last month to say: ‘Singing is literally my life, it’s my hobby, my love, my freedom and now my job.’ With this is mind we wish you a speedy recovery so you can get back to doing what you love best!
