“I’m going completely deaf in my right ear and I’m kind of losing sound in my left,” he said. “I’m dizzy, can’t walk a straight line. All of this out of nowhere.”
The Grammy nominee said he’s been seeing a doctor, getting tested and using medication, but doesn’t know yet why he’s going deaf.
“Don’t know how or why. I’m seeing a doctor, got MRI’s going on and medication and, you know, all of that.”
“But, it still hasn’t given me a reason to give up,” he said. “It still hasn’t given me a reason to stop feeling like I can do and be everything that I’ve set out to be. The goals are still the same: to be great, to be the greatest. And I want to say that for you, too.”
The singer said he plans to document what’s happening in the hopes of helping others.
“No matter what you’re going through, no matter where you find yourself,” he said, “whether your body is failing you, whether your mind is failing you, whether your spirit is failing you: keep going, keep pushing.”
