It depends: If your tonsils are small and the change in your throat is small then the likelihood of it changing your singing voice is small. The bigger your tonsils are the greater the likelihood that it will change your singing voice. The reason is that your throat and nose is your vocal tract. The vocal tract is what determines "your sound". By removing tonsils you change your vocal tract and you can change your sound.

A member asked:

I have noticed my tonsils change shape regularly, new pockets are forming and they are changing constantly over the last 6 months. Is that' normal?

Be examined: In the absence of an active infection of the tonsils and if they are not grossly enlarging in size, I don't believe this is a major problem. To be safe, this should be examined by a doc and perhaps a throat culture should be done. The tonsils are corregated in appearance normally and may change normally in shape from time to time, to a minor degree.
