Jessie J belts out Defying Gravity in mini concert amid health battles
Jessie J revealed she is ‘starting back up’ as she put on a mini concert amid her health issues.
The Bang Bang singer, 33, announced that she had been diagnosed with Ménière’s disease last year, with the condition impacting the ear.
She recently opened up about the illness, explaining that she is in pain every day over the symptoms.
After taking a brief social media break, the star returned to Instagram with an incredible video as she belted out songs in her living room.
Beside the clip, in which she performed Defying Gravity, she penned: ‘Defying Gravity with no makeup on swollen (allergies) eyes in house clothes putting on a mini concert (one song sung twice) after not singing for over a month with a sassy about of reverb to an audience of one in my living room is a whole mood…
‘We gotta start back up somewhere witches.’
Fans were living for the video, and heaped all kinds of praise in the comments section below.
‘This is absolute perfection,’ a follower replied. ‘I know so many people have been waiting for so long to hear you sing this, and it was definitely worth the wait, you sound unbelievable!’
‘We do not deserve these vocals & we cherish them,’ another agreed.
An Instagram user posted: ‘My favourite voice singing my favourite musical.’
‘Your voice can be felt for miles,’ one said, as a fan added: ‘That voice is EVERYTHING you magical witch.’
Jessie spoke out about her health issues after spending Christmas Eve in hospital, and shared how the illness had impacted her life.
Ménière’s is an inner ear condition that can cause vertigo, tinnitus, hearing loss, and the sensation that everything around you is spinning, meaning it is difficult to stand or walk straight.
There’s no cure for the illness, which mostly affects people aged between 20-60 – symptoms can include nausea, hearing ringing or buzzing inside your ear, dizziness and losing your balance.
‘Yesterday I tried to sing a song I can usually sing with with ease, and I couldn’t. The issue I’m having isn’t my voice but is effecting my voice,’ she told followers last month. ‘6 months in and I still cannot get through a full day without pain in my mid neck / throat.
‘Some days are so much better than others. Worst part is that it’s not my vocal chords. They are healthy and in there with their hands up like. Not us J, we got you. It’s something around them. Spine, thyroid, allergy. Who knows. The tests continue.
‘95% of the time I am good. Positive and strong. Which is what I portray on here mostly. But that 5% will grow if not acknowledged. So yes, sometimes like yesterday. I break. All hope disappears. I feel so lost and so alone in what’s going on [sic].’
She concluded: ‘To anyone else going through a testing time. I feel you. I see you. We will get through this. Love you all.’
