Hello

I am trying to locate the author/title of a short story. It concerned a frontier world that opened an opera house, a little girl became a big opera star, all the rough miners and settlers fell in love with her. She came down with some sort of local fungus, the entire settlement took up a donation and sent her back to earth in suspended animation to get cured. She came back years later, cured and with a free batch of vaccine, but also physically augmented by the doctors on earth. Soon other singers went to get the same treatment she did, the world forgot about her, she left to tour the galaxy singing. It was told from the point of view of one of the rough settlers.

thanks
