Celine Dion: Expecting vocal cord to recover by mid-April
Highly-acclaimed singer Celine Dion has announced that she is on track to make a full recovery from her vocal cord injury.
The musician was forced to pull out of more than a dozen concerts at the Las Vegas's Caesars Palace due to the ailment.
Celine has now updated her fans that she was recently diagnosed with an inflammation of her vocal cords following a doctor's examination in LA, but is on the road to recovery.
The artist is expected to finish medical treatment by mid-April and then begin work on new French and English language albums.
The performer said in a statement that she has been greatly encouraged by support from her fans.
"During this recovery period, so many fans, many of whom were inconvenienced by the canceled shows, have posted kind words of encouragement on my website," she commented. "I'm so grateful for their thoughts and their support... more than they'll ever know."
The 'My Heart Will Go On' singer, who has amassed four US number one singles, will return to the concert stage in Las Vegas on June 9.
