Sam Smith gets mum's support for operation

Sam Smith's mum is flying to the US for his vocal surgery.

The 22-year-old singer is set to have an operation on his vocal cords this week, and his mum has jetted over to the US to support him during his recovery.

Posting on Instagram, he wrote: "Wagamama night. Pre-op tomorrow then op the next day. My mum is flying over tonight, so excited to see her x hope you're all good x (sic)."

The chart-topping star revealed he had suffered a haemorrhage on his vocal cords last month, and had been forced to cancel several Australian tour dates and banned from speaking as a result.

He wrote on Instagram: "Just to let all my beautiful fans know, I'm ok. I am insanely relaxed and am somewhere in the middle of Australia with no phone, no laptop and I haven't spoken a word in three days. Trying my absolute best to be back on my feet and singing for next week."

However, the 'Lay Me Down' hitmaker was later informed he needed surgery in the US to repair the damage, meaning he has had to pull out of his planned performances for the next two months.

And while the four-time Grammy winner knows the operation is vital for him to continue singing, he confessed it is going to be tough being away from his fans for such a long period of time while his voice recovers.

He wrote: "I miss you all so f***ing much. This next 7 weeks is going KILL ME. (sic)"
