With a new CD coming out and a tour planned, Jeremy Camp starting experiencing something that every singer dreads. “I would sing like 5 songs and lose my voice.” Jeremy headed to the doctor, a vocal specialist, who discovered a small burst blood vessel on one of his vocal chords. The doctor told him, “If you keep going you could hemorrhage the whole thing. You would have to have surgery and not talk for a long time. Of course,” Jeremy recalled, “that is terrifying!”
During 2 weeks of complete vocal rest Jeremy had to address the worse case scenario. “Even if my voice never comes back, this is not my life. Christ is my life.”
In those 2 weeks Jeremy kept praying, “Lord, this is what I do. This is what you called me to do. If you want me to keep doing this, please help me. Heal my voice. And I really believe he did.”
Jeremy went back to the doctor and after just 2 weeks everyone was shocked at the progress that was made. The doctors said things looked 10 times better and cleared him to start working up to singing again. Now Jeremy feels better than ever!
Jeremy Camp’s new album The Answer is out now and The Answer Tour is coming to Portland on October 20.
