Singer Meghan Trainor coming in 2015 the American Music Awards in Los Angeles, California, November 22, 2015.
Meghan Trainor has a number of big changes in life after her second vocal cord surgery.
“It really shocks you and puts you in the place,” Trainor, 24, told People. “I stopped drinking — I know it hurts your cords. I don’t ever smoke anything, I drink a lot of water and I began to eat healthier and exercise more.”
“Now, mentally and physically, it is proven to work, so I’m going to continue to do that,” the Grammy winner continued.
Trainor is no stranger to the surgery. Her first surgery for a severely hemorrhaged vocal cord came in 2015, and the cause of the cancellation of the rest of her “M-Train” tour.
In April 2017, the “Bass” singer revealed on “Ellen” she had another surgery, after which she would be on complete vocal rest for three months.
“It was scary. It is a different time, such as: “I take away all your hopes and dreams for a second, put it on pause and see if they come back,'” Trainor said. “My first thought was: I hope this works. We just kept saying, ” We are never doing this again, we are never doing this again.’ We are so very careful.”
A year post-op, Trainor said they are “better than ever.”
“My voice sounds better than ever,” the recently engaged Trainor said. “And you can hear that on the album. You can even hear on the first single. It’s just clean and fresh, but still sounds like me.”
