The singer is sick and was therefore unable to perform. “I love you very much and apologize from the bottom of my heart” The 21-year-old Shawn said he was not feeling well when he woke up. Once at the doctor’s he was diagnosed with a forehead cavity infection and laryngitis. His vocal cords are therefore swollen and singing is therefore discouraged to prevent further damage. “I love you very much and apologize from the bottom of my heart,” Shawn writes to his Brazilian fans on Instagram. “I promise I’ll make it up next time.” Shawn Mendes is not the only singer who suffers from laryngitis, Jan Smit’s condition was also diagnosed. The Volendam singer has canceled all his activities for the rest of the year to recover.
