Sting: Creating Hearing Loss Awareness
In previous articles we have talked about New Generation Hearing’s involvement with Hear the World, a program created by Phonak which educates people through different media about hearing health with the help of their Celebrity Ambassadors.
The Ambassador chosen by your Miami Hearing center this week is Sting. Sting or Gordon Matthew Thomas Sumner is a talented musician known by all. He started his career after quitting as a school teacher and seeking out his American drummer friend Stewart Copeland. They both created the band “The Police”. After their successful album Synchronicity and their following world tour, the band disintegrated, only to reunite during charities and special events.
Sting has since become a successful solo artist, winning eleven Grammy Awards. He has also graced us with singles such as “If you love somebody, set them free”. He has not only entertained us with his music but he has also supported political and humanitarian rights, as well as creating the “Rainforest Foundation” , an organization dedicated to saving our planet.
It is no surprise that Sting would support the Hear the World Campaign. As a musician, he understands the importance of hearing health and the correct usage of hearing aids. He also supports hearing education,“ Our hearing is not only integral to how we communicate, but also how we experience the world around us”. Sting wants to create awareness in individuals and help them understand how to prevent hearing loss.
