Bill Harley entertained and educated the standing-room-only crowd about the “Listen To Your Buds” campaign’s important but simple message: turn down the volume.
The stars came out to shine at ASHA’s “Listen to Your Buds” family concert at the Recording Industry Association of America in Washington, D.C., in June. The event celebrated ASHA’s “Listen To Your Buds” initiative, which focuses on the safe use of earphones. The campaign is aimed at preventing noise-induced hearing loss by helping parents teach their children how to use personal audio technology safely.
Hosted by the energetic Mindy Thomas of the “Absolutely Mindy Show” on Sirius XM’s Kids Place Live, the concert featured a performance by children’s music star and two-time Grammy-winner Bill Harley, plus a special appearance by actor Esai Morales, co-founder of the National Hispanic Foundation for the Arts.
Each guest talked about the campaign’s important but simple message to turn the volume down when wearing ear buds. The event focused on the importance of preventing noise-induced hearing loss and encouraged audience members to practice and spread the word about safe listening.
