Donny Osmond to Undergo Vocal Cord Surgery
Donny Osmond, Puppy Love hitmaker, recently discovered he has a hemorrhagic polyp on his right vocal cord. His representative tells People that 57-year-old Osmond will be treated by throat specialist Dr. Steven M. Zeitel.
Zeitel has previously treated stars including Adele, Lionel Richie and most recently British singer Sam Smith, who underwent an operation in May 2015. Osmond has postponed his U.S. tour dates in September 2015, but is expected to recover in time to resume his Las Vegas residency with his sister Marie at the Flamingo Hotel on September 29, 2015. Osmond took to Twitter last month, June 2015, to thank his fans for their support – writing, “Thanks 4 all your get well wishes. Dr said it’s a severe infection on my vocal chords. Should be back to normal soon.”
