New York - Young soul sensation Sam Smith is singing again six weeks after he underwent vocal surgery that left him silent.

The 23-year-old British singer posted on Monday on Instagram a short video of him singing Elvis Presley's Can't Help Falling in Love with his brassy range.

"I'm back," was Smith's simple message.

I'm back ??

Smith earlier announced that he would resume performing on 3 July at a festival in England's Thetford Forest.

Upcoming dates include the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland and Lollapalooza in Chicago.

Smith, who had been touring with little break as his career grew, cancelled shows in April when doctors noticed a vocal cord hemorrhage following a performance in Sydney.

He sought help from a vocal specialist in Los Angeles and was advised to undergo surgery. The 14 May operation in Boston left him silent for several weeks.

Smith, who until a few years ago was a bartender in London, amassed a global fan base with his soulful ballad about a one-night stand, Stay With Me.

He was the big winner at the latest Grammy Awards, taking home three of the four most prestigious prizes.
