Sam Smith singing again after surgery

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 a short video on Instagram of him singing Elvis Presley’s Can’t Help Falling in Love.

“I’m back,” was Smith’s simple message on Monday.

Smith says he will resume performing on Friday at a festival in England’s Thetford Forest.

It’s a welcome return to form for the singer who was in the middle of his Australian tour in April when he was forced to cancel after suffering a haemorrhage on his vocal cords.

The quadruple Grammy winner cancelled the remainder of his tour Down Under and sought help from a vocal specialist in Los Angeles who advised him to undergo surgery.

The May 14 operation in Boston left him silent for several weeks.

However, the singer is clearly back and ready to resume his gigs.

He also just won a BET Award on Sunday night for Best New Artist, but he wasn’t there to pick it up.

Smith will return to Australia in November for seven dates across the capital cities over two weeks, playing bigger arena venues, kicking off in Perth Arena on November 28.
