House legend Lil Louis is deaf in his left ear after airhorn blast
“Even if I can only hear with one ear, I’ll play twice as loud, so you can feel it.”
Last month Lil Louis’ continuing career was left in doubt after a debilitating ear injury from a promoter who let off an airhorn mere inches from the legendary producer during his performance. Now he has shared an update through his Facebook. Louis will never hear again in his left ear, however he’s not letting that stop his career.
The producer wrote to his fans “I will not stop. Even if I can only hear with one ear, I’ll play twice as loud.” He said that while the news has been difficult, he’s accepted it and will move forward. Read his full statement below.
Appreciate all of your love.
Regretfully I have been told that I have suffered permanent damage in my left ear. Difficult as this has been to fathom, I’ve excepted this as my new normal.
I’ve considered walking away a thousand times… Until this morning when I was awakened by a voice that said, “You have a gift”.
Hearing that voice, I realised the gift God gave me was not in my ears. It was where I’ve heard everything I ever created first, in my mind.
So for my father and everyone who prayed for me, I move ONWARDS… I will not stop. Even if I can only hear with one ear, I’ll play twice as loud, so you can feel it…
