Trainor canceled shows last month because of her damaged vocal cords. Her MTrain Tour was expected to play through September.

She wrote that she's "determined to do what it takes to get better and come back around stronger than ever."

The 21-year-old's hits include "All About That Bass," "Lips Are Movin'" and "Dear Future Husband."

Nickelback singer Chad Kroeger and Sam Smith have also had problems with their vocals this year.
