Earlier this month, Adele Adkins, singer/amazing, suffered a crippling experience with laryngitis and was forced to cancel her North American tour. The singer is still sick, but earlier today she took to her website saying that she’s on the mend!
Terrific news, Adele! In a lengthy passage, she writes:
Hello! As I’m sure most of you know i had to cancel over half of my US tour a couple weeks back. it was a devastating decision to make, but i really had no choice. i had to give my voice 2 weeks rest or risk permanent damage. I’m so so sorry. we are in the middle of rescheduling it all and i will see you there when i return. once all the new dates are in place ill let you know straight away! i was having the best time ever on tour, i enjoyed the shows so much and met so many amazing people and got to play with the best artists Ive ever played along side with, and i really am gutted to be back before its finished. thank you though to everyone who came to the shows i was able to do! I’m at home now, watching box sets and sorting things out into neat piles and resting. i haven’t been able to cook for almost 3 months cause Ive been on the road so I’m getting back into that. Ive become obsessed with beyonces i am sasha fierce tour dvd and 30 rock, and Ive also started uploading over 1000 cds to my itunes! long but satisfying! i cant wait to be able to sing again, I’m bored stiff. ive had a check up and im on the mend, i still need to take it easy and rest but things are looking up. i havent been told to not sing or talk for a month, i have given up smoking again! and also im not having singing lessons. i got better before and im getting better this time, and i will do everything i can to make sure nothing like this happens again! im gonna be on stage in london in just under 2 weeks but its a surprise i think!? xx
Her borderline novel-length narrative pretty much sums everything up. Isn’t it nice seeing the news come straight from the source? Stay strong, Adele. We’re glad to hear that this little disease has helped you realize the importance of a “no-smoking” lifestyle! A voice as golden as yours shouldn’t have to put up with those nasty cigarettes. . .
