Get well soon T-Pain! The "Buy You A Drink" singer took to Instagram to let fans know he has to take a hiatus from music in order to avoid permanently damaging his voice. T-Pain confessed he felt pain in his throat when he was singing which prompted a doctor's visit.
“The truth of the matter is, I haven’t been taking good care of myself,” T-Pain explained. “After my last couple of shows I started getting a few pains in my throat and I went to my doctor. And yeah, he basically told me that I had to get off the road immediately or I’m going to start permanent damage to my voice.”
T-Pain has been touring after recently winning Fox's hit show 'Masked Singer.' Fans first learned about how rigorous touring can permanent damage a singers vocal cords in the 90's when Mariah Carey confessed she suffered permanent damage. More recently in 2018, SZA had to enter a period of convalescence after it was initially reported that Sza had permanently injured her vocal chords after touring for the past 11-months. We wish T-Pain well and hope he heals fast because we need T-Pain to be touring for years to come!
