Harry Belafonte: Celebrity Ambassador
The “Hear the World” Campaign is an initiative whose goal is raising awareness about hearing loss and educating individuals on the correct usage of hearing aids. The involvement that New Generation Miami Hearing Center has with this campaign should be apparent by now. Each week, Celebrity Ambassadors are praised for their role in the initiative to help spread the word about the importance of hearing health.
Harry Belafonte is a famous musician, actor and now a “Hear the World” Celebrity Ambassador. In 1956 he released his album “Calypso” which contained the song “Day O” and remained number 1 in the Billboard charts for 31 weeks, selling more than one million copies in a year. Belafonte has won many awards including Grammys and in 1959, he was the first African American to win an Emmy for his TV show “Tonight with Belafonte”.
