Adele is recovering from throat surgery, but will that hold her back….? Somehow we don’t think so.
Adele first came onto the scene back i 2008 when she won the first ever critics choice award , and was the number-one predicted breakthrough act of 2008 in an annual BBC poll of music critics, in the same year. Her first album ‘19′ debuted at number one, certainly not disappointing us with her amazing ability to write he most powerful lyrics. It seems nothing can keep our homegrown superstar down, not even major throat surgery. Her latest album ‘21‘ is breaking sales records, and is the top-selling album worldwide right now.
Adele has boasted of loving singers, like Etta James, and i cant think of a better music idol, her influences definitely show in her unique, soulful style, and her amazing success is living proof that the world is definitely ready for Adele.
Adele is currently taking some time off, whilst recovering from career-saving throat surgery. statement from the US hospital where the singer had her surgery said:
“Based on the advice of her doctor and voice therapist in the United Kingdom, Adele came to Boston to consult and undergo corrective voice surgery with Dr Zeitels, the Director of the Massachusetts General Hospital Voice Center.
“Dr Zeitels has pioneered many vocal cord surgical procedures including the use of specialised lasers to stop vocal cord bleeding in singers.” The surgery was suggested after, Adele suffered a vocal cord hemorrhage. The Brit-winner has been advised by doctors to take the rest of the year off to recuperate.
The surgery forced her cancel her already arranged tour, but Adele and her management have promised that the singer will be back. Untill then her DVD ‘Live At The Royal Albert Hall’ is available to buy now. A statement was relesed to say that the surgery has been completely successful, and as long as Adele take the the time she needs to recover, there is no reason for her to come back bigger and stronger than before.
