Singer Huey Lewis: I may never sing again

American Rock singer Huey Lewis suffers from Ménière's Disease. Ménière's Disease is an inner ear disorder that also causes hearing loss.

Earlier this year, American singer Huey Lewis cancelled the 2018 world tour with Huey Lewis and the News due to his hearing problems. Now he fears that he may never sing on stage again.

“I haven't come to grips with the fact that I may never sing again”, he said to the NBC program Today.

"Even though I can hear you, we can talk, I can talk on the phone — I can't sing,'' he said. "I can't hear music. I can do everything but what I love to do the most, which is a drag”, he said in the interview with Today.

Ménière's Disease is an inner ear disorder which causes vertigo, tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and hearing loss. There is no cure for Ménière's Disease.

Huey Lewis and the News have been performing worldwide since the 80’s and he and the band The News are especially known for the hit song “The Power of Love”, which was used in the film classic “Back to the Future” from 1985.
