Florence Welch Performs on 'Good Morning America' After Vocal Injury (Video)
The British frontwoman spoke to Robin Roberts about her road to recovery and preparing for the band's North American tour in October.
After sustaining a vocal injury that caused multiple European concert cancellations, Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine is back in action. The British band appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America Wednesday, where Welch opened up to Robin Roberts about her scare.
“I was singing…and I actually felt it. I lost about three octaves, I had to sing really low just to get through the show,” said Welch. The singer added she was desperate to do the shows, but that might have caused permanent damage to her vocal chords. The band opted to play it safe and ended up canceling a handful of performances.
With the band about to embark on a North American tour in October, it was imperative for Welch to rest her pipes. After performing her band's latest single, “Spectrum,” which is currently spending its second week at No. 1 in the UK, Welch said she was pleased her voice has healed well. “It seems to still work,” she joked.
The “Spectrum” remix by DJ Calvin Harris, which was released July 5, is Florence + The Machine's first UK chart topper.
