Derek Hough Shares Cover of ‘Ashes Of Eden’

Hunky professional dancer Derek Hough has opened up for the first time about his vocal chord surgery and his relationship with God.

The US star who is a Mormon wrote a beautiful caption on Instagram where he also shared a stunning cover of Breaking Benjamin’s ‘Ashes Of Eden’. The multi talented dancer, singer and actor opened up about the vocal surgery he underwent last year after he completely lost his voice, and also emotionally opened up about his relationship with God. His caption confirmed that he had become distant from his faith but is now beginning find his beliefs again:

 co”Last year I lost my voice and had to have surgery to fix my vocal chords. I couldn’t speak a single word for over a month. Not even a whisper.  This forced me into a place of listening and stillness. Within that place I started hearing old questions echo in my head. “Is there something or someone out there guiding me?  Over the years my relationship with a higher power became distant. But through several powerful experiences, it has become very clear to me that the energy and power of something greater is within, guiding us all. When I finally got my voice back I felt nervous to speak or even utter a word in the fear of my vocal chords snapping. But when I heard this song it resonated with me so much and motivated me to sing again.  I hope you enjoy this little passion project I put together. Perhaps inspire a question or even an answer.
