Adele - Adele On The Mend, Singer's Surgery A Success
Adele is on the road to recovery after successful surgery to repair her vocal cords. The British songstress was admitted to the Massachusetts General Hospital in Hospital where she underwent surgery conducted by the same doctor who treated rocker Steven Tyler for a similar problem in 2006, reports the Los Angeles Times.
In October, the 23-year-old cancelled the remainder of her 2011 live concerts after struggling with vocal problems. In a lengthy blog post, the singer apologised to fans but stressed the importance of having the surgery, resting and recuperating. In a statement that will please fans of the singer, the Massachusetts hospital said, "Adele underwent vocal cord microsurgery by Dr. Steven Zeitels to stop recurrent vocal cord hemorrhage (bleeding) from a benign polyp. This condition is typically the result of unstable blood vessels in the vocal cord that can rupture". The vocal problems marred an otherwise sensational year for the London-born singer, who dominated charts in the UK and U.S. with her second album '21' and the hit singles 'Rolling in the Deep' and 'Someone Like You'.
Back in September, Adele hinted she would be recording the theme song to the next James Bond movie, starring Daniel Craig. The film was unveiled as 'Skyfall' and began filming last week, but a November 2012 release should allow enough time for the singer to recover and record the song.
