Michael Buble has been forced to cancel a number of upcoming performances due to a health scare.
“I am bowing out of some upcoming events due to pending vocal surgery, which will require a period of time for me to rest and recover,” the Canadian singer wrote in a Twitter message to fans on Wednesday.
“No talking or singing for awhile, but my doctors expect a complete recovery,” he added.
The “Haven’t Met You Yet” singer had been set to perform at a Marvin Gaye Tribute at the Kennedy Center in New York City on June 5, and was also scheduled to be honored at the Canadian Governor General Performance Arts Award Gala on June 11.
“This award will now be presented at next year’s 25th Anniversary on June 29, 2017,” he said.
Sam Smith, Adele and Meghan Trainor have all had surgery for damaged vocal chords in recent years.
Bublé recently became an Internet sensation for very different reasons when a photo of the “Crazy Love” singer appearing to fellate a corn cob emerged online … sending social media went a little nuts itself.
Some users even went so far as to helpfully Photoshop Bublé in hilarious — and sometimes obscene — scenarios.
See his far more serious tweet below.
