Singer Michael Bolton, celebrated for hits like “How Can We Be Lovers,” has disclosed he had surgery after a brain tumour diagnosis late last year.

Expressing gratitude for a successful surgery and surrounded by family support, the two-time Grammy award-winner announced a temporary hiatus from touring to concentrate on his recovery.

“Thanks to my incredible medical team, the surgery was a success. I am now recuperating at home and surrounded by the tremendous love and support of my family,” he said.
