Stage Fright

Deaf-blind blues pianist Michelle Stevens will play at Stage Fright Saturday morning in Melbourne. It's a showcase of talented singers, musicians and artists such as Stevens to raise funds for Able Australia Services. Stevens career was re-ignited by the charity after she gave up playing because of an ear disease. Blind since infancy, she played at clubs and made television appearances until she lost most of her hearing in the early 90s. More than a decade later, Able Australia Services reintroduced her to music and provided a cochlear implant. For more information on Stage Fright, click here. Below is a video on about Stevens graduation from La Trobe University.
