The singer reached out to fans on Instagram to let them know that she will have to cancel the rest of the tour. She wrote: “I am devastated, scared, and so sorry.”
She also said that she has bronchitis and that made her cough a lot, damaging her vocal cord. She promised her followers she will do everything to get better immediately so she can see them soon.
As such, the “All about that Bass” singer will also have to cancel the Kentucky State Fair concert. According to David Snowden, producer of the fair’s concert, he learned of Trainor’s condition when they got a call from the singer’s management.
“She is legitimately very ill and I’m just hoping she comes out of this. She’s probably pushed it too far trying to do the dates. … There’s no question she gave it her all,” Snowden recalled.
He was also aware that this was not the first time it happened to the young pop singer.
Trainor is not the only young singer who had experienced vocal cord problems. British singers Jess Glynne and Sam Smith have had similar experience recently. The two singers had to undergo surgery to save their vocal cords. Adele also had to cancel her concert before due to a similar throat problem.
Since the only option is surgery, many are wondering how long will it take for Meghan Trainor to be able to sing again? Will it affect the pop singer’s voice quality? Well, seeing how the surgery turned out for Sam Smith, it doesn’t seem like there’s much to worry about.
