The beautiful voice of crooner Michael Bublé won’t be heard anytime soon. The 40-year-old has to have surgery on his vocal cords and has canceled his upcoming appearances.

The “Haven’t Met You Yet” singer announced the unfortunate news via social media yesterday.

“I wanted to let you know that I am bowing out of some upcoming events due to pending vocal cord surgery, which will require a period of time for me to rest and recover,” he said. “No talking or singing for awhile, but my doctors expect a complete recovery.”

One of the shows Bublé is most upset about missing is a June 5 tribute to Marvin Gaye that is being held at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. He was slated to sing alongside the likes of Andra Day, Valerie Simpson, Jussie Smollet and Mary Wilson at the Whoopi Goldberg-hosted event.

Additionally, the Canadian adult contemporary artist was set to be honored June 11 with the National Arts Centre Award as part of his country’s Governor General’s Performing Arts Awards celebration. He will now receive the accolade in 2017.

“Thank you in advance for your prayers and good wishes,” he concluded his message. “I’ll keep you up to date on my progress.”

Last year, British singer Sam Smith suffered bleeding on his vocal cords and had to cancel concerts overseas in order to have suspension microlaryngoscopy surgery to treat it. The procedure took place in May and he was back on tour just two months later.

“Me Too” songstress Meghan Trainor had the same problem last summer, and said canceling tour dates because of it was “killing” her. She successfully healed.

Luckily for Bublé, he will be surrounded by loved ones as he recovers. He has been married to Argentinian actress Luisana Lopilato since 2011 and the couple are the proud parents of two sons, 2-year-old Noah and 4-month-old Elias.
