The iconic singer, Shania Twain gets all emotional in an interview, in the course of a revelation concerning her throat surgery.


The Canadian born artiste sure knows her onions when it comes to delivery of melodious tunes. This comes as no surprise as she started at a tender age of 10, she was musically inclined in high school; she played the trumpet.


While she seems flawless and perfect when it comes to hitting the right notes, the singer has also been through a difficult time when she couldn't make use of the voice to soothe herself.

The award-winning musician shared her experience with the throat disease, which plagued her a few years earlier. Although she is hale and hearty and has since been touring to different locations, she still found it hard to keep her emotions under wraps when she opened up about the Lyme disease and dysphonia she combatted during her musical career.


The details garnered by Extra provided the information on her experience. In the interview, she claimed that her condition affected her, especially after she went under the knife twice.

The songstress also stated how positive she kept herself after coming to terms with the fact that her voice may witness some drastic changes.

According to her:

"I had to have an operation that was very intense, and it's an open throat operation, very different from a vocal cord operation. I had to have two of them, so that was really, really, really tough, and I survived that meaning emotionally I survived, and I'm just ready to keep going. When you're a singer, and it's your voice, it is just a terrible, terrible feeling. It was a great, great loss, so I had to come to terms with losing my voice that I had and rediscovering my new one… I don't want to give up."


The legendary superstar has shown beyond doubt her dedication to her art, and regardless of her state of mind, she has excelled in her task of continuing in the entertainment industry. Her music has even been featured as soundtracks of several TV dramas such as "The Big Bang Theory," and "Gilmore Girls."


 In 2011, the singer popped up with "Today is your Day" after being missing in action for two years, in 2012, she started her residency in Las Vegas titled "Still the One," and is currently running another residency titled "Let's Go!"

The "Still the One" crooner does not deny that she puts in her best when it comes to recovery, she told People in 2017, the same year she premiered her album "Now," just how "very difficult" it had been.



music is not the only thing she talks about.

Reportedly, "60 minutes Australia" revealed

that the singer was "shattered" and "heartbroken" after she felt there were too many "traumatic" experiences hitting her at once when her marriage with Robert Lange hit rock bottom.
