    Another singer? Good God refund money and retire.


  2. I am a musician with profound hearing loss. It is not a bad thing to not hear. I have developed technologies that allow me to make music by seeing sound as color and light. Vibrating platforms are available to help feel sound also. Lastly embrace the Deaf community and learn Sign Language. Continue to do what you love Brian. It will work out just fine.
