Sam singing post surgery
Young soul sensation Sam Smith (above) is singing again, six weeks after he underwent vocal surgery that left him silent. The 23-year-old British singer posted a short video of him singing Elvis Presley’s Can’t Help Falling in Love with his brassy range on Instagram on Monday. “I’m back,” was Smith’s simple message. Smith earlier announced that he would resume performing in July at a festival in England. Upcoming dates include the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland and Lollapalooza in Chicago, US. Smith, who had been touring with little break as his career grew, cancelled shows in April when doctors noticed a vocal cord hemorrhage following a performance in Sydney, Australia. He sought help from a vocal specialist in Los Angeles, US, and was advised to undergo surgery. The May 14 operation in Boston, US, left him silent for several weeks.
