Smith finds fresh voice

Townsville Bulletin - - LIFESTYLE -

YOUNG soul sen­sa­tion Sam Smith is singing again, six weeks af­ter he un­der­went vo­cal surgery that left him silent.

The 23- year- old Bri­tish singer posted a short video on In­sta­gram of him singing Elvis Pres­ley’s Can’t Help Fall­ing in Love.

“I’m back,” was Smith’s sim­ple mes­sage on Mon­day.

Smith said he would re­sume per­form­ing on Fri­day, tak­ing to the stage at a fes­ti­val in Eng­land’s Thet­ford For­est.

It’s a welcome re­turn to form for the singer who was in the mid­dle of his Aus­tralian tour in April when he was forced to can­cel af­ter suf­fer­ing a haem­or­rhage on his vo­cal cords.

The quadru­ple Grammy win­ner can­celled the re­main­der of his tour Down Un­der and sought help from a vo­cal spe­cial­ist in Los An­ge­les who ad­vised him to un­dergo surgery.

The May 14 op­er­a­tion in Bos­ton left him silent for sev­eral weeks.

How­ever, the singer is clearly back and ready to re­sume his gigs.

He also just won a BET Award on Sun­day night for Best New Artist, but he wasn’t there to pick it up.

Smith will re­turn to Aus­tralia in Novem­ber for seven dates across the cap­i­tal cities over two weeks, play­ing big­ger arena venues, kick­ing off in Perth Arena on Novem­ber 28.
