I have a job interview in less about 30 hrs. and have lost my voice!! HELP!!!

Title says it all. Any advice/suggestions are greatly appreciated. I dont think its a cold as I have no other symptoms other than a sore throat and lost voice. I went to a concert Friday and I did alot of yelling/singing so I thinks thats the cause. So far Im going to:

Take cough drops trhroughout the day
Drink lots of hot tea
Gargle with Apple Cider Vinegar throughout the day

Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. My interview is Tuesday at 10. Should I call off work tomorrow evening (current job/ manual labor/ moderate to little talking). What about "resting" my voice (going mute tomorrow)?

Thanks in advance

Keep the throat moist.
Cough drops are okay, but I prefer hard candy.
Add honey to the hot tea.
Gargle with warm salt water.

I'd rather shoot myself than put vinegar in my mouth. Stop yelling and singing at a concert, no one can hear you. If you want to look good for a picture, just open your mouth. I gave up on it a long time ago when I ended up with sore throats like you.

A relatively new study I read stated just that, only the other way around.

tell the interviewer that you lost you voice after yelling at your previous boss for not giving you a raise.

Actually, you can turn this disadvantage into an advantage. This makes you considerably more noticeable, it forces your interviewer to listen even more intently to your answers, and it shows that you are willing to show up even when sick, and that you're willing to overcome obstacles.

If anything, I'd suggest you play your loudest headbanging heavy metal all the way to the interview and scream right along.

Kind of agree. You won't lose out on the job just because of your voice... and if you do, you can claim discrimination.

I interviewed a guy that had just come from the hospital after getting some industrial solvent in his eyes at his current job (either that or his meth lab exploded). He came into the interview with eyes bloody red and weeping tears constantly, it was difficult to even look at him during the interview.

I nearly gave him the job just out of pity, and the fact that he showed up straight from the hospital in obvious pain, but ended up hiring someone else.
