Subject: Adele cancels tour due to vocal damage
From: keberoxu

The musical career of Adele has been a force in its own right. Adele's future rests somewhat on the health of her instrument, her voice.
The cancellation of the remainder of Adele's tour, and her message
to her public, warn that this popular singer's voice is in jeopardy.

If she cannot perform or record anymore -- worst-case scenario, I realize --
she has already left her mark in a few hard-working years,
not only with financial success
but with a musical presence and an emotional appeal
that are stirring and moving to many people.
True, some are repulsed, while many are attracted.
So there are people who say negative things about Adele; this is not news.

For me, Adele's recordings and performances have been more than worth listening to,
even when she does things that make me fear for her future and for her voice's health
with the force and intensity of her singing.

Say what you will, I sincerely hope Adele recovers and prevails.

I also wish her well. I love her voice, wish she would do some jazz things. Yes, get well soon, for sure.

I think far too much is expected of artists when they are roped in to stadium sized gigs. I wish her well.

Had a listen to some of her stuff and was underwhelmed.

But then I'm a folkist.

I know I'm wrong in some peoples eyes but there you go.

That said I'm also pretty sure that she will recover as there cannot be any reason for her to constantly tour and perform - she surely can't need the money. Perhaps the parasites might though?

A pity her issue did not manifest itself over USA soil.

Did you hear about the Daydreamers? I just heard about it this moment.
It happened on the night of the canceled Wembley appearance.
This group of Adele fans met around the stadium to sing together:
"Adele can't sing for us, but we can sing for her."

There were a few HUNDRED of them.

Here's a video of Adele singing the Dylan song, "Make You Feel My Love":

I know the Internet is full of infallible people bent on condemning everyone who is in the public eye, but I think Adele does a good job. Seems to me that in many of the videos I've seen, that Adele takes pretty good care of her voice. But voices are delicate, and vocal problems happen to many of us who sing a lot in public. And if one is a singer, it's so hard to quit singing when quitting is necessary.

Adele has a beautiful voice. I hope she doesn't lose it.

-Joe-

Here's Adele singing "Rolling in the Deep." She does seem to push her voice beyond healthy limits on this song. I would how she could safely sing this one:

Don't wish her ill, and know that I would hate being unable to sing (and that's just for fun, not profit) but I echo the "underwhelming" rating above. Perhaps if she gets a rest away from the commercial pressures, she may come back with some more mature, nuanced and engaging material that saves her vocal cords from being beaten to a pulp by constant belting!

Some years ago, I read an article in People Magazine called "Throat Doctor to the Country Stars". The specialist said the following, as I remember:

Country stars' voices suffer because the stars have not had training and their singing technique is hard on the voice.

Going on tour and singing too loud, too long can make the voice crash completely.

When the voice is sore, avoid caffeine, chocolate and alcohol, all of which are drying.
==========
I think this info was from some other source: talking is harder on the voice than singing. If your throat's sore, avoid talking as much as you can.

I hope Adele recovers.

I admire Adele, I think she has really done a lot of good things to inspire young women who might wish to follow a career in music. It would be a shame if she were unable to continue singing. I love her voice, wish she would tackle more covers as she does them so well. Her songs don't due her voice justice.

It's the curse visited on the singer / songwriter.

If you can write and make popular your own songs then the megabucks roll in.

Unfortunately most stuff trotted out by the whelter of SSWs is at best fairly ordinary and certainly within the folk world downright poor.

Yes there are exceptions but I have sat through sets by well respected songwriters and asked those around me afterwards to recall what they have just listened to.

Apart from the "ONE SONG" they have been unable to do so.

The "mega bucks" often roll in because the artist is saying something that people want to hear. I have listened to and admired many singer songwriters, I have also listened and admired many folk musicians. I don't see these things as being opposed to each other. There are talented musicians in all fields of music. It seems to me that a lot of people in the so called "folk" world see success as an automatic indication of having no talent...when this is clearly not the case. Many very talented musicians have been hugely successful and have made "mega bucks".
