R&B Crooner Abraham McDonald To Undergo Vocal Surgery

by Cyrus Webb
We all know how easy it is to take things for granted until it is gone or find it threatened. It is in times like this that you are able to appreciate all that life has to offer.
One musical treasure that I have found over the past few years is singing sensation Abraham McDonald.
He does more than just sing. The Island Def Jam recording artist that was introduced to the world by Oprah Winfrey has been sharing his amazing story and gift everywhere he goes. Through songs like MIRACLE, HEROES and LOVE YOU he has not just entertained but inspired as well. Now the man who has given so much of himself to others is in need of our help.
Fans of the R&B crooner woke up on Wednesday, May 23, 2012 to this message from his website:
"Hello Friends, Fans and Family
"The beautiful voice you love to hear has gone through a change. Abe noticed his voice had gotten more hoarse and raspy after he sang. He attributed this to long nights of writing and singing. He eventually went to an ENT (Ears Nose Throat Doctor) and discovered he had several Polyps on his vocal cords. Polyps can take a number of forms. They are sometimes caused by vocal abuse.  The show must go on pressure. The Polyps appear on  both of the vocal cords. They appear as a swelling or bump (like a nodule), a stalk-like growth, or a blister-like lesion. In Abe’s case one has hemorrhaged causing him to go on vocal rest immediately. The doctor explained his need for surgery as soon as possible to get the Polyps removed. Abe’s voice is a gift from God, it brings a joy to you and Abe, as well as a way of living and surviving.

"Abe needs your help. We need 500 people to donate $20 or more toward Abraham McDonald’s  much needed surgery in July.  Abe is to say the least devastated but still encouraged to sing and know that he will prevail.  Stay connected and follow his recovery on
"Abraham McDonald would appreciate if you can donated immediately using the link below. Accepting Visa, Mastercard, American Express

Let's rally around this man who has given us not only great music but showed through his story what it means to dream big and see those dreams come true.

I would also invite you to visit Abraham's music page on at and share his music with others. Together we can make sure that he is able to come through this challenge ready to give the world more of himself and his gift.
