Chart-topping British pop star Shayne Ward has flown to Los Angeles for
throat surgery to save his voice.

talent show The X Factor last December (05), will go under the knife on
Thursday (31AUG06) to have career-threatening nodules removed from his
Ward's manager and The X Factor judge Louis Walsh is confident in the
team of surgeons who will operate on the That's My Goal hit maker.
Walsh says, "He's having the op on Thursday. It's the team of
doctors who've performed on Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston. We're
confident he'll be singing again in six weeks."
