As her health deteriorated, Shania Twain developed problems with her vocal cords and eventually lost her voice.
She was forced to take a break from performing, taking a total of 15 years away from music.
Not yet diagnosed with Lyme disease, Twain thought it was just fatigue because she had just come off tour and was a new mum, but her ailments continued.
“No voice doctor could explain,” she had said. “They were like, ‘It’s probably psychological.’ I didn’t buy it, and I was sure it was a physiological thing.
“I couldn’t call out for the dog. I wasn’t heard very well on the phone. I couldn’t speak in loud environments.”
Seven years later, she was diagnosed with Lyme disease. Twain has since undergone multiple throat surgeries to correct the damage and, in the process, was told she was in danger of losing her singing voice.
What Is Shania Twain’s Most Famous Song?
