Widex Moment Hearing Aids Make Sweet Music for Motown Legend Duke Fakir

As a founding member of the legendary soul and R&B group, the Four Tops, Duke Fakir’s music career has spanned more than seven decades. The popular vocal quartet helped define the Motown sound of the 1960s and has entertained millions of fans across the globe with their rich harmonies and classics such as “Reach Out, I’ll Be There” and "Baby I Need Your Loving." 

Gradual hearing loss made staying in tune and on pitch increasingly difficult.

Given Duke’s amazing longevity as one of the group’s lead singers still entertaining audiences today, it’s hard to imagine that he ever struggled to stay in tune and on pitch. But as Duke relates, the gradual hearing loss he experienced for many years made it increasingly more difficult.

“While singing on stage I found that I couldn’t hear myself completely, which is critical to staying on key and singing properly. The progression was slow, so it took me a while to realize that something needed to be done about it,” Duke says.
