Minnesota State Fair officials are looking for an act to replace Meghan Trainor, who has canceled her Sept. 1 appearance because she needs surgery to treat a vocal cord hemorrhage, the fair announced Tuesday.

The "All About That Bass" singer took to Instagram to announce that she has canceled the remainder of her tour after getting her second vocal cord hemorrhage of the summer.
