The future American Idol

Ever since Kevin started hearing with his CIs, he has always loved music! He seems to enjoy music much more than our hearing son. I was always told that CI patients couldn't fully embrace music because of the finite number of pitches they hear. They said CI patients wouldn't truly be able to appreciate it. It doesn't seem to be true for Kevin. I added a video clip of him singing a few weeks ago. Now, he actually does sing and say the exact words to Patty-cake and he know about 3 other songs by heart, but he will never let me get those on film. In this clip, he is just belting out his rock and roll voice while 'playing' the guitar. I think it is very funny because he is in his own little world thinking he is a rock star! You never know, maybe he will be on American Idol. When we brought him home from the hospital, Elliot Yamin was still on AI. I remember thinking, well he is deaf in one ear and he is doing ok. Maybe this won't be so bad after all. Indeed, it isn't! Enjoy.
