Jessie J Cries Over Health Struggles While Suffering From Nodules in Her Throat: Singing Is ‘My Happiness’
“I was asked to send a speech therapist a video of me singing something quietly, so she could hear my voice,” the 33-year-old musician wrote via Instagram on Friday, June 18, noting why she was singing so low in the clip. “The first song I sang was ‘I Want Love.’ Just hearing myself sing it and feel so vulnerable whilst singing bought me to tears.”
The British singer, who also shared a close-up video of herself crying while singing, revealed that she has “never ever” been able to perform the song since its initial recording because of “the pain I am experiencing” in her throat. She did, however, sing “I Want Love” for its music video, which dropped on Thursday, June 17.
“Man, it’s been hard not singing. It’s literally my lifeline and my happiness,” she continued. “Being quiet is not something I’m good at. Or makes me feel like myself. Lord knows I’m loud af.”
While recording the soundbite for her therapist, Jessie J realized that she needed to “be honest” with herself and her fans regarding her ongoing health issues.
“To be totally real, to have your support and love would help me get through this faster I’m sure,” the “Domino” singer added. “I’ve always been honest however hard it feels. It’s important to be strong enough to be weak. Especially on a platform like this.”
