MATT NATHANSON has partnered with STARKEY HEARING FOUNDATION to raise awareness and funds for the hearing impaired. NATHANSON recently made the journey from SAN FRANCISCO to HUANCAYO, PERU to volunteer with the Foundation team and distribute over 1,000 hearing aids and after care to people in need.
The resulting video of his trip is not only a moving document of his time there, but also serves to raise funds for STARKEY HEARING FOUNDATION to continue their distribution efforts around the world. All of proceeds from the video are being donated to the Foundation by NATHANSON and his label, VANGUARD RECORDS. The more the VEVO/YOUTUBE link is posted and shared and clicked, the more funds STARKEY HEARING FOUNDATION will receive.
NATHANSON says of the experience, "If I couldn’t hear, I would be lost. Because I play music for a living, hearing is everything ... It ignites something in you when you do work like this. I feel like this is the beginning of a life of giving back.”
"When we help someone hear, we provide a way for them to connect with others and experience the world around them,” said BILL AUSTIN, Founder of STARKEY HEARING FOUNDATION. "With the support of passionate partners and hearing angels like MATT NATHANSON, we help people in need around the world reach their full potential and engage with the things, like music, that add color and joy to their lives."
Additionally, NATHANSON will appear on VH1's Big Morning Buzz in early NOVEMBER. His single "Headphones" has been approved for usage by FOX-TV in the WORLD SERIES, college football, NFL football, college basketball, NASCAR, UFC, plus pre-game coverage.
