Tems Cancels UK Shows After Been Diagnosed With Reflux Laryngitis

Singer, songwriter Tems has canceled her upcoming UK shows as she has been diagnosed with vocal cord illness known as Reflux Laryngitis.

Tems made the public aware of this sad development with her voice via her Twitter page, explaining the reason behind the cancellation of the two shows.

The singer penned a heartfelt note, saying: “It breaks my heart to say this but there’s 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.”

Tems revealed that her doctors advised she stay away from singing, an advice which necessitated the postponement of her Birmingham and London shows earlier slated for June 15, and July 17, respectively.

Reflux Laryngitis is a voice disorder that results from irritation and swelling of the vocal folds due to the backflow of stomach fluids into the throat.
