‘I doubted I would ever sing again’ – Shakira

Shakira’s severe vocal cord problems left her doubting if she would ever sing again…

The Hips Don’t Lie singer had to delay the start of her El Dorado World Tour last November (17) as she struggled with “strained vocal cords”, but the health issue soon worsened as she suffered a vocal haemorrhage, forcing her to push back the entire European leg.

The Colombian superstar also had to reschedule her North American shows, which had been due to kick off in January (18). And in an interview with the BBC following her comeback show in Hamburg, Germany in early June, the 41-year-old admitted fearing she might never sing again.

“It was actually more than a haemorrhage. It was like a vascular lesion,” she said, when asked how bad her vocal issues were. “So you can imagine, there were times when I doubted I would ever be in front of a crowd again singing my songs.”
