Morissette Amon reveals she lost her voice minutes before her Dubai concert

Morissette Amon had a successful show at the Dubai World Trade Center last August 17, but unknown to those who watched her concert, she experienced a major problem a few minutes before stepping on stage.

Amon revealed during a press conference on August that the Dubai-leg of her “Morissette is Made” concert had a short delay because she suddenly lost her voice.

“I was in Dubai for the Dubai-leg of [Morissette is Made]. Just minutes before my opening prod, biglang nawala lang yung boses ko,” PEP.ph quoted Amon as saying.

“Nag-panic po kami kasi, wala, hindi kami prepared. Kasi, hours before, I was totally fine,” she added.

The singer said that her extensive travelling could have affected how her body functions, thus, causing her to lose her voice.

“Me and my family and my management, naniningil na po yung katawan ko sa kaka-travel ko.

“For the past weeks, I’ve been traveling. I came from Canada and Australia that same couple of weeks. So, feeling ko noong Dubai [concert], naniningil na siya,” she explained.

“Although, hindi ko naman napi-feel na nai-stress ako, nag-e-enjoy naman po ako. Wala, bigla na lang pong nangyari,” she added.

She said that her concert had to be delayed for 30 minutes because she had to take some medications for her voice.

Because of what happened, she felt bad for her Filipino fans who travelled long distances to watch her.

“Ako po, parang nahihiya din talaga ako sa mga audience ko, lalo na yung mga bumiyahe pa to be able to join us. May mga nag-cancel pa ng plans nila para maging nandun lang noong gabing yun.

“I owe it to them. I still had to give them a performance sa show. Nairaos naman,” she said.

In the end, she was able to regain her voice and put on a good show for her fans. She also thanked the people who have helped and supported her during that certain incident.
