In an Instagram post, the Grammy-nominated performer shared her diagnosis.
She wrote, “It breaks my heart to say this, but there has been no other option for me. I’m not feeling too good at the moment. After my last performance, I was diagnosed with Reflux Laryngitis, and I have to take some time off to protect what’s left of my voice.”
“On doctor’s order, I have to postpone the two shows this week. The new dates for both shows will be announced tomorrow.”
