Sam Smith has had an extremely busy year promoting his debut album In The Lonely Hour. Because of the album’s overwhelming success, Smith has been touring around the world in support of it. However, all of that touring seems to finally be taking a toll on the young singer’s voice.

Smith recently shared some bad news with his fans via his Instagram page. “I have been vocally exhausted for awhile now however last night in Sydney I had a small hemorrhage on my vocal cords,” said Smith. As a result, Smith will have to cancel the remainder of the dates on his Australian tour, and hopefully reschedule the dates for the near future.
