Adele to undergo surgery
Adele is to undergo throat surgery in an attempt to cure her vocal problems which have forced her to cancel all her work commitments until the end of 2011.
The Brit singer has been diagnosed with a vocal chord haemorrhage.
A statement released on her behalf said: "It is with deep regret that Adele has been forced to cancel her remaining live dates and promotional appearances in 2011. She is to undergo surgery to alleviate the current issues with her throat and a full recovery is expected. As a result, doctors have ordered her to rest her voice and completely recuperate before looking to schedule any work commitments."
Over three million copies of her second album '21' have been sold in the UK alone.
