Soulful British songbird Adele was forced to cancel yet another performance thanks to a damaged vocal chord that has plagued her for the better part of the year. The 21-year-old singer was scheduled to perform at the Q Awards in London on Monday (October 24), but didn't to go on due to the condition of her throat.
Appearing on stage to accept an award last night, Adele apologized to the audience in a breathy voice, saying she was "terribly sad," but doctor's orders prevented her from singing. A representative for Adele's record label said she would require "an extended rest period."
Earlier in the year, Adele was forced to decline singing with Beyoncé, one of her idols, at the Glastonbury music festival due to laryngitis. This month, she cancelled 10 sold-out tour dates in the U.S. The "Rolling in the Deep" singer did perform at MTV's Video Music Awards in August.
