Billy Price Regains His Voice with UPMC

Billy Price — a popular soul singer from Pittsburgh — had been experiencing a reoccurring issue with his voice. After having a cyst removed on this throat, Billy noticed the surgery hadn't solved his problem.

Concerned about his singing passion, he went to the UPMC Voice Center. Billy began working with singing voice specialists that combine the expertise of a professional singer with the knowledge of vocal physiology, laryngology, and speech pathology.

Billy has learned how to sing in a unique way that does not compromise his voice. He continues to go to monthly lessons — and has revived his voice.
