Shawn Mendes Cancels Concert in Brazil Due to Laryngitis
Shawn Mendes is taking a break after pushing himself a bit too hard.
The 21-year-old singer called off a performance in Brazil as he recovers from laryngitis and a sinus infection.
“São Paulo, im so sorry to have to tell you this, but today I woke up feeling ill, and went to the doctor, to find out I have laryngitis and a sinus infection which has caused swelling of my vocal cords,” he posted to his Instagram story.
The singer says he was advised by medical professionals to cancel the show: “It breaks my heart to do this but my doctors told me I can not perform tonight or it would risk long term damage to my voice.”
He added, “I love you all so much and apologize from the bottom of my heart as I wish I could be there on stage tonight. I promise I will make it up to you next time I’m back in South America.”
It’s all good, Shawn! We love you anyway.
