» Beautiful Voice Quieted…For Now
Alison Krauss will be quiet for awhile after being diagnosed with the vocal condition, dysphonia, which is an impairment in the ability to produce voice sounds using the vocal organs. She is undergoing proper treatment which includes includes vocal rest.
A statement from her camp says they don’t expect any long-term problems, “We anticipate a smooth, quick recovery given proper treatment and adequate rest.”
Vocal problems are common for singes as they put a tremendous amount of stress on their vocal chords. Shania Twain was diagnosed with this same thing once, and Keith Urban, Keifer Thompson and Miranda Lambert have recently had to take to some quiet time to heal problems with their voices.
