In 2017, Chris Clifford, the bearded giant from Lindsberg, won the Swedish “Idol” final in style. Two years later, he also participated in the international version of “America’s Got Talent” but was eliminated in the semi-finals.
Since then, Clafford has toured and played almost continuously. But now the music had its effect. In a long and personal message on Facebook, the singer explains in English and Swedish why he is taking a break from music.
“Since I started my career, I’ve been busy partying, writing songs, and everything in between. I’ve never taken time to recover.”
Clafford writes that in August, he caught a cold that he never wanted to get rid of. After nearly three months of fever and cough, the body finally gave up.
“I’ve never experienced this myself before, but after making the decision to postpone all concerts for a few months, the pressure has been released from my chest.”
Chris Clifford is now on sick leave due to fatigue but has written that he expects to be back on the track again in February.
