However, the night of this premiere, things did not go as planned for the artist, who made “a small hemorrhage”. A “laryngeal boost”, which turned out to be more serious than he imagined a few days later. And for good reason: for this health glitch, Michaël Gregorio had to be operated as he reveals in the columns of the Parisian, on newsstands Tuesday, October 19.

But no question of simply letting his voice rest, it is an operation that his doctors quickly mentioned to get to the bottom of the problem. “At the beginning I really didn’t want to”, confides Michaël Gregorio, specifying that what he feared the most then was not “losing his spoken voice”, but not knowing “to what extent [she would] regain its elasticity “. “At the beginning I wanted to find other more or less Cartesian solutions. I did everything: alternative medicine, ask up there,” he admits.

An operation ultimately inevitable, to which Michaël Gregorio finally resolved, “reassured” by the testimonies of artists, such as Hélène Ségara and Nathalie Dessay, who also had this kind of problem. “There were a few complications, the doctors struggled a bit, but I don’t regret it.

After this operation, the singer confides to have had a long convalescence, where during ten days in particular, he was not advised to speak, but also, to sneeze and cough. “After a week, when the doctors told me: ‘Go ahead, talk’, I felt like I was walking on eggshells,” he confided, he who still has a little struggling to sing a few artists from his repertoire.
