MURRAY, Utah — David Archuleta fans received some good news as the Utah singer said his recent vocal cord surgery went well and is resting his voice as he recovers.

In an Instagram post Tuesday, he said, "I just finished a follow-up meeting with Dr. Nasseri who just performed a vocal surgery on me yesterday. Can’t remember the specific term of it but something with nodules and blood vessels on and in the cords . . . . Thanks everyone for your concerns and well wishes during this recovery time!

Archuleta, a Murray-native, also reported that he hasn't spoken since February 7 and will continue to rest his voice for several weeks.

He also relayed a "fun fact," that Dr. Nasseri saw him when he was a young teen and was the one who found out he has a vocal paralysis issue, as well as being the doctor on American Idol when he competed.
