Professional singers have been forced to cancel shows due to losing their voices, leading to disappointment among fans.
Singers of all genres—pop, country, R&B, and more—are having to make the difficult decision to skip or cancel performances because of vocal strain. One of the most recent examples of this was Morgan Wallen, who canceled a show Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in Oxford, Mississippi.
For these professionals, vocal health is a priority. The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association recommends rest, hydration, and vocal warm-ups to maintain vocal health. Professional singers often work with vocal coaches and receive medical treatment to keep their vocals in top shape.
Despite the precautions, vocal fatigue is a common problem, particularly for those who tour year-round. It can be difficult for singers to balance their performance schedule with the maintenance of their vocal health.
For fans, it can be frustrating and disappointing to have their favorite artist cancel a show. But for singers, this is sometimes the only way to ensure their long-term vocal health and their ability to perform in the future.
A lawsuit has been filed against Wallen for the no show. Currently no tickets have been refunded even though that is supposed to happen
