Tank Unveils He Is Going "Completely Deaf" In One Ear

Singer/songwriter Tank shares in a touching Instagram video that he's losing his hearing. In the clip he also says, "No matter what you're going through, no matter where you find yourself, keep pushing."

On Wednesday Tank revealed that he’s currently losing his hearing. In an Instagram post, the singer and songwriter shared that he’s going completely deaf in his right ear.

“I’m going completely deaf in my right ear. I’m kind of losing sound in my left. Dizzy. Can’t walk a straight line. All of this out of nowhere,” he shared in a video posted on Instagram. “Don’t know how or why. Seen the doctors. Got MRI and all that good stuff going on. Medication.”

He also said that he’s not giving up on his health or his life goals. 

Later in the video, he said, “It still hasn't given me a reason to give up. It still hasn't given me a reason to stop feeling like I can do and be everything that I've set out to be. The goals are still the same — to be great, to be the greatest. And I wanna say that to you, too. No matter what you're going through, no matter where you find yourself, whether your body’s failing you, whether your mind is failing you, whether your spirit is failing you, keep going. Keep pushing.”

Before he wrapped the clip he expressed that he’d keep fans updated on the process that follows. “Imma document my process just to show you the fight, just to show you that you're still in it — we’re still in it,” he added.

We're going to keep Tank in our prayers, especially since he's given so much of himself over the years. Also, it was a great feeling to see celebrities like Jamie Foxx, PJ Morton, Taraji P. Henson, and countless others sharing words of support.
