DON'T sing when you are sick!!!!
When you are sick, don't sing! If you do, you risk injury if you have a cold, you may also have swollen vocal folds. Swollen tissue is more easily injured. Think of the last bad pair of shoes you had and got a blister and you felt pain but you kept walking. Then it broke and you bled. This happened to my wife a couple of months back. It proves the point. Irritation can lead to a blister and a blood blister and you do NOT want that on your vocal folds BECAUSE those are ...precursors to nodules (callouses) and they do NOT vibrate correctly. If nodules are surgically removed and you are left with scar tissue, it also will not vibrate the same as normal tissue and your sound may suffer horribly. If you are hoarse, do NOT sing! Hoarseness is the sound that swollen vocal folds make. It should be a warning signal to you! Read this: http://www.msn.com/…/adele-cancels-second-phoen…/ar-BBvKtrF…
