Shawn Mendes is “so sorry” for canceling a show in Brazil.
The 21-year-old singer tweeted a message to fans on November 30, announcing the cancelation of his Sao Paulo show due to laryngitis.
“Sao Paulo, I’m so so sorry to have to tell you this, but today I woke up feeling ill, and went to the doctor, to find out I have laryngitis and a sinus infection which has caused swelling of my vocal cords,” said Mendes. “It breaks my heart to do this but my doctors told me I cannot perform tonight or it would risk long-term damage to my voice.”
