The “Haven’t Met You Yet” singer announced the health scare on Twitter Wednesday, adding that while he’ll have to cancel some upcoming performances, his doctors expect a full recovery. “To my fans: I wanted to let you know that I am bowing out of some upcoming events due to pending vocal surgery which will require a period of time for me to rest and recover. No talking or singing for awhile, but my doctors expect a complete recovery,” reads the tweet. “I am especially sorry about two events that I will now be unable to attend: I was scheduled to be honored at The Canadian Governor General Performance Arts Award Gala on June 11th. This award will now be presented at next year’s 25th Anniversary on June 29, 2017. In addition, I will no longer be performing at the Marvin Gaye Tribute at the Kennedy Center on June 5th,” Bublé added. “Thank you in advance for your prayers and good wishes. I’ll keep you up to date on my progress,” the tweet concludes. The news comes four months after the Canadian crooner, 40, and wife Luisana Lopilato had their second child. Already parents to 2½-year-old son Noah, the pair welcomed son Elias in January. Bublé is just the latest singer to undergo vocal cord surgery: Sam Smith, Adele and Meghan Trainor have all had surgery to protect their damaged pipes.
