As long as he is otherwise healthy, I would expect that he will sing again. Make sure he has a high quality diet and has daylight during normal daylight hours and is allowed a quiet place to rest. If he is beginning to molt, he will not sing, and periods of not singing are normal for the species. Stress can cause changes in vocalization and minimizing stress and getting him back into a normal routine will restore his voice.
