The Artist: Alicia Keys
When She Suffered Vocal Cord Damage: April 2008
How It Impacted Her: A Keys had to cancel two tour dates back in '08 because of swollen vocal cords. And at other times in her career, she's also struggled with vocal cord issues while on stage. For instance, during the filming of her "VH1 Storytellers" show last October, Keys' voice gave out on her several times. The same thing happened a little more than a month later during a Hurricane Sandy relief benefit.
