[photogallerylink id=104427 align=left][lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Adele[/lastfm] has become notable for many things since her Grammy-nominated, record breaking album, 21. The most obvious is her powerful and beautifully warm voice that has literally inspired everyone from moms to musicians and all that fall in between.
So when the news broke that Adele needed vocal chord surgery, the world was with her. We rallied around the songstress with tweets and good vibes. We don’t want to take too much credit away from the surgeon and staff that performed the procedure but Adele thanked us too!
In a recent interview with Billboard, who named her Artist of the Year, the UK powerhouse revealed that if all continues as it is she will be back to singing as soon as February!
She outlined the situation saying, “The surgery couldn’t have gone better. But because I was singing with damaged vocal chords for three or four months and because of the surgery and because of the silence after the surgery I now have to build myself back up vocally. It’s gonna be a lot easier for me to sing now. And mentally I won’t be worried about my voice on stage anymore. So I have to get used to that. That’ll take most of January, so February I’ll be singing properly!”
As for the other thing Adele has been known for, it’s being her own, free-thinking self. Despite numerous offers and uproar of success, Adele once noted that she never intends to endorse products. This move displayed Adele’s willingness to stick to her own plan, time line, ideas, etc.
On the same token, in the same Billboard interview, Adele let her audience know not to expect another album until she is good and ready. She decided to rest, allow her success to settle, perhaps, but mostly to rest. “I’m just going to lay some concrete, set up home and just ‘be’ for a bit,” she says. “I’ll disappear and come back with a record when it’s good enough. There will be no new music until it’s good enough and until I’m ready.”
Whenever she takes her break, we’ll miss her. But know that we plan to welcome her back with open arms, whenever that may be.
Don’t be afraid to grab her new concert DVD, Live at Royal Albert Hall, if you’re itching for an Adele fix!
