Details have emerged as to why singer Brandy canceled an appearance at the Kennedy Centre where she was to perform. According to a source, the singer canceled the appearance because she wasn’t going to be allowed to lip-sync.
Brandy took the decision because her doctor told her to allow her vocal chords rest.
The source claims:
“Brandy didn’t want to sing live, bottom line. She wanted to pre-record vocals and lip sync [instead of] singing at this venue with the orchestra. Everyone around her told her there was no way she could do that. She became unhinged and ultimately pulled the plug on the entire weekend. We were told it was a combination of stage fright and her being a perfectionist. Whatever her phobias, you just don’t lip sync in front of an orchestra and she wanted to.”
Brandy was to perform at the event in an Orchestra but had to cancel due to doctor’s advice. She apologized on Instagram:
“Dear everyone that I love and care for and everyone that loves and cares for me, I know a political announcement was made for the cancellation of the Brandy Kennedy Center shows, but I wanted to give a detailed explanation after seeing an otolaryngologist. Most of all time when I’m not feeling my fullest potential, I’ll ignore everything related to the opposition and clear Universal signs to avoid claiming illusions of illness. Dr. Thomas Winkler, in DC, did an extensive examination on my ears, nose and throat. His findings were sinusitis, acute laryngitis, hemorrhagic right true vocal and bilateral severe vocal cord edema. (That’s a lot and I don’t truly know what that all means.. doesn’t sound promising) Additionally, I’ve been experiencing hemorrhaging on my left eardrum and was firmly advised by Dr. Winkler to stay on strict vocal rest for a week and to cancel any professional performances. Deeply hurt by that because these kind of performance opportunities don’t come around #ADimeADozen. I am thankful to the Kennedy Center family for true understanding. I apologize from the bottom of my heart to my extended family, my fans and the members of the Kennedy Center for this unfortunate experience.”
