Singer’s Touching New Video Brings Gift of Music to Those Facing Hearing Loss

To singer-songwriter Matt Nathanson, the ability to hear music is everything.

So, instead of using his latest music video to show off his chops, paint a pretty scene or merely promote himself, Nathanson traveled with the Starkey Hearing Foundation to Peru to hand out more than 1000 hearing aids to those who couldn’t afford them. The result is the touching video below.

“To be able to be a small piece of these folks gaining their hearing or regaining their hearing, it’s beyond anything I’ve done,” the singer says in the clip.

Bonus: 100 percent of artist and label proceeds will be donated to the Starkey Hearing Foundation.
