British soul star Adele has been given the all-clear to sing again following a throat scare which prompted her to cancel her North American tour.
The Rolling in the Deep hitmaker fell sick with laryngitis, which led to problems with her vocal cords, and she was advised to give up performing temporarily in order to allow her throat to heal.
The news led to fears Adele would have to cancel more dates over the summer (11), including a slot at the iTunes Festival in London on Thursday (07Jul11), but the singer has now been given the green light to take to the stage.
She tells Britain's Radio 1, "It's basically a hole in your vocal cord but I sang through it so that's why it popped. I'm better now, it's fine, I got the all-clear."
Adele will resume her rescheduled North American tour in Vancouver, Canada on 9 August (11).
