Sam Smith is celebrating two things today: his 23rd birthday and a successful surgery.
According to the Massachusetts General Hospital, his vocal cord surgery was successful and he is expected to make a full recovery.
The surgeon, Dr Seven Zeitels, also performed the same surgery on Lionel Richie, Steven Tyler, and Adele.
They have revealed that Sam’s condition was the result of unstable blood vessels in the vocal cord that can rupture and prevent vocal performance.
Last month Sam had to cancel shows, and he also missed the Billboard Music Awards this week where he won Top Male Artist. He appeared by video using cards to say thank you and express his excitement.
We are so happy and can't wait for Sam to start singing again.
His next show is July 18.
