ARIA award-winning singer Jenny Morris has revealed she has a rare neurological disorder that has forced her to stop performing.

Morris, 59, was diagnosed with spasmodic dysphonia, which causes involuntary spasms in the larynx.

“I sound like a 50-year-old crone who’s been smoking three packs a day for 30 years, and not in a sexy way,” Morris has told the ABC’s Australian Story .

“I have no idea whether I will sing again. At this point, I can see that I wouldn’t want to charge people to hear me sing.”

Jenny had a huge amount of hit’s during the 80’s and 90’s including She Has To Be Loved, You I Know and Break In The Weather, and worked with a number of other artists including INXS.
