Huey Lewis Lends His Voice to Hearing Loss Gala

Huey Lewis will attend the 2018 “So the World May Hear” Awards Gala in Saint Paul, Minnesota, July 15.

The event–which benefits the Starkey Hearing Foundation —raises funds for the foundation’s work supporting hearing health programs around the world, including fitting in-need children with hearing aids.

Lewis was diagosed in April with an inner-ear disorder called Meniere’s disease. The condition caused Lewis significant hearing loss. He is currently unable to perform.

Lewis has since been fitted with a new hearing aid provided by Starkey Hearing Technologies.

Alice Cooper is also scheduled to perform at the event. Comedian Sinbad will serve as host. Other performers include New Jersey native Gloria Gaynor and Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda.
