Sam Smith singing again after surgery

NEW YORK, USA – Young soul sensation Sam Smith is singing again six weeks after he underwent vocal surgery that left him silent.

The 23-year-old British singer posted Monday, June 29  on Instagram a short video of him singing Elvis Presley's "Can't Help Falling in Love" with his brassy range.

"I'm back," was Smith's simple message.

Smith earlier announced that he would resume performing on July 3 at a festival in England's Thetford Forest. 

Upcoming dates include the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland and Lollapalooza in Chicago.

He sought help from a vocal specialist in Los Angeles and was advised to undergo surgery. The May 14 operation in Boston left him silent for several weeks.

Smith, who until a few years ago was a bartender in London, amassed a global fan base with his soulful ballad about a one-night stand, "Stay With Me."

He was the big winner at the latest Grammy Awards, taking home three of the four most prestigious prizes. –
