Blind Singers?

Answer

Some of the most famous blind singers are Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Jeff Healy, and Ronnie Milsap. Ray Charles started to lose his eyesight at age 5 and went completely blind at age 7, due to glaucoma. Stevie Wonder was born six weeks premature, and the blood vessels at the back of his eyes had not yet reached the front and their aborted growth caused the retinas to detach. Jeff Healey became blind at age 1, due to cancer. His eyes had to be surgically removed, and he was given artificial replacements. Ronnie Milsap was born with a condition that left him almost blind. During his childhood he lost his remaining vision. Due to a developing blood clot, both his eyes were removed.
