I lost my voice on Saturday and I am regaining it now. Its still hoarse and I still cannot sing without me losing my voice. Is it possible for me to lose my singing ability all together? I am in choir and a good singer, please help.

It is unlikely that you would experience a permanent "loss" of your singing voice. I would suggest that you refrain from singing for the next several days, but if your hoarseness persists for more than a week or two, see an Ear, Nose, and Throat physician for a thorough evaluation.
