Ariana Grande Ordered to Stop Singing by Doctors
Just as her debut album shot to the top of the charts this week, singer Ariana Grande has been ordered by her doctors to stop singing immediately after suffering a vocal cord hemorrhage.
Explained a physician on this morning's GOOD MORNING AMERICA, "A vocal cord hermorrhage is when some of the tiny blood vessels within the soft tissue of the vocal cord ruptures, causing essentially a bruise." She added, "It's important to rest The Voice in order to prevent long-term damage.
The singer, who many are calling 'The New Voice of Pop,' has been forced to cancel upcoming performances due to the condition.
GRANDE, who starred in the original cast of Broadway's '13', teamed up with a diverse bevy of friends for her debut album. Big Sean delivers a magnetic verse on the shimmering "Right There", which fans receive as an instant download with their pre-order of Yours Truly and is already #4 on the iTunes Pop Chart. She also trades irresistible harmonies with The Wanted's Nathan Sykes on her ballad, "Almost Is Never Enough"-also available on the soundtrack for one of the summer's hottest films, Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. In addition, the album includes an unshakable rendition of the Broadway classic, "Popular Song," with multi-platinum international star Mika.
For YOURS TRULY, GRANDE hit the studio with a variety of in-demand writers and producers including the legendary Babyface as well as Harmony [Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, Fantasia]. As a result, the entire tracklisting is a dynamic and diverse affair.
GRANDE rose to immense popularity starring as the beloved Cat Valentine, culminating in her own hit series Sam & Cat. The series premiered on Nickelodeon in June 2013 and is now a bona fide hit for the network. Singing and performing since the age of eight, music remains GRANDE's first love.
