Adele has been given the all-clear to sing again following a throat scare that prompted her to cancel her North American tour.
The British singer came down with laryngitis, which led to problems with her vocal cords, and she was advised to give up performing temporarily in order to allow her throat to heal.
The news led to fears Adele would have to cancel more dates over the summer, including a slot at the iTunes Festival in London on Thursday, but the singer has now been given the green light to return to the stage.
She tells Britain’s Radio 1, “It’s basically a hole in your vocal cord, but I sang through it so that’s why it popped. I’m better now, it’s fine, I got the all-clear.”
Adele will resume her rescheduled North American tour in Vancouver, B.C., on Aug. 9.
