Sam Smith says his throat operation was a ''blessing in disguise'' as it has made him more ''scared than normal'' about pushing his voice to its limits.
Sam Smith's throat operation was a ''blessing in disguise''.
The 'Lay Me Down' hitmaker has been trying hard to turn his recent surgery into a positive, admitting it has made him more ''scared than normal'' but has insisted that is a good thing.
He said: ''It was a worry just because I hate cancelling shows and disappointing people and that was horrible, but in terms of my health and my voice it was actually a massive blessing in disguise.
''I went to the throat doctor who looked after Adele and saved Julie Andrews voice and I was in really good hands. So I never doubted that my voice would come back, it was just the pain of having to reschedule stuff. And even now it's just changed the way I feel about my voice. I'm a bit more scared than normal which is a good thing I guess.''
The 23-year-old star says he feels much ''stronger'' following the operation and is looking forward to heading back into the studio.
Speaking to BBC Radio 2's Ken Bruce ahead of his BBC Radio 2: In Concert performance this evening (03.09.15), he added: ''I just feel stronger in the way that I'm singing. So yeah, it's more reliable.''
Presented by Jo Whiley live from the BBC Radio Theatre in London, In Concert will be available live on Radio 2, BBC Red Button and online at bbc.co.uk/radio2 from 8pm.
