It is begun on 7th February, when Archuleta took to Instagram to postpone his concert at The Troubadour in West Hollywood, Calif., at the last minute. He uploaded an apologetic video in a whispery voice, describing that his doctor had just ordered him to vocal rest. Though he did not describe the reason for the order. Then, the next day, he delayed his next 7 shows and disclosed in another post that he “hemorrhaged a vocal cord” and had vocal nodules.
He penned, “I am beginning with 10 days of vocal rest and will have to watch from there how the recovery goes and if I will be able to get back to the remaining shows.” As UCI Health notes, a vocal cord hemorrhage “happens when a blood vessel within the cords ruptures, causing it to gather within the cords.” Singers can experience a hemorrhage when frequently using their voices.

Singer added, “I want to be sure to heal so I can come back sans having done anything that could do permanent damage, the “Crush” singer further added.
