In American pop culture, few things are as much fun to watch as when a singer explodes on the music scene and becomes the hot star of the moment.
A case in point is Meghan Trainor. Ever since Trainor’s “All About the Bass” rocketed to No. 1 on the charts last year, everything Trainor does, says and sings about gets tweeted, blogged and discussed.
So when doctors advised the “Dear Future Husband” singer that she had to rest her voice due to a vocal cord hemorrhage and she began cancelling shows on her new tour—including her July 3 scheduled appearance at Borgata Festival Park—a lot of concern was expressed in cyberspace.
And the ton of “get well soon” messages that flooded Twitter and Instagram may have helped as the 21-year-old singer has gone on Instagram to say she’s recovering.
“But there is good news! I’m feeling much better,” Trainor wrote after announcing a couple more cancellations.
“Thank you Dr. Kessler for seeing me immediately and being so helpful and thank you guys for all the edits/get well posts you made. You made me feel a lot better about this crappy situation. I love you all so much.”
After cancelling her July 4th weekend shows, Trainor said “Right now the doctors want me on complete vocal rest until they are healed. I have never missed a tour date before so this is killing me.”
The good news is that Trainor’s Borgata Festival Park show has been rescheduled for September 13. All tickets from the July 3 show will be honored (click here for info). Remaining tickets are $45 and available here. VIP packages are available here.
And here’s a fact for the old-school fans out there. Trainor, who’s signed by Epic records, had an eight-week run at No. 1 with “All about the Bass” in 2014. That beats the label’s old record held by a guy named Michael Jackson, who has seven-week runs with “Billie Jean” and “Black and White” back in the Paleozoic era.
Trust us, when you’re beating Michael Jackson records, you have arrived.
So it’s the prefect chance—well, second chance—to see what all the fuss is about. It’s what Borgata built Festival Park for.
