The singer is now in a recovery facility after being rushed to the ICU in May, his wife Lucie Zolcerva-Grimm shared.
The new update, however, is a more positive one — “I’m thrilled to say that his speaking voice is completely back. So the speech therapy portion of it has been very successful,” Zolcerva-Grimm said, adding that while her husband “doesn’t have a singing voice yet, he is not stressed over it. He feels that with proper vocal exercises and retraining he will get back on track.”
Grimm had also seen a large improvement over his mobility: “He is walking on his own and that’s a huge thing for us, getting that leg strength back, getting his coordination and his equilibrium back, those were all massive things. That’s probably his biggest win right now.”
The update came ahead of a planned four-hour benefit in Las Vegas to help pay for Grimm’s medical costs on July 9. Fans can also contribute to a PayPal for donations.
