Music to Our Eyes featuring Sam and Casey Harris of X Ambassadors

The Foundation Fighting Blindness, the world’s leading organization committed to finding treatments and cures for blinding retinal diseases, is launching a new livestream music series, Music to Our Eyes. The series premiere will feature X Ambassadors on Thursday, August 20, 2020, at 7 p.m. ET.

This exclusive conversation and concert is presented in partnership with Two Blind Brothers – founded by Bradford and Bryan Manning, who created the apparel company to create ultra-soft clothing, build community, and donate 100 percent of profits toward research curing blindness.

X Ambassadors’ keyboardist, Casey Harris, has been blind since birth and has a rare genetic disease, Senior-Loken syndrome, which affects both his kidneys and retinas. The acoustic performance by brothers Sam and Casey Harris will feature their top hits including, “Renegade,” “Unsteady,” “Hold You Down,” and more.

In between sets, Jason Menzo, chief operating officer at the Foundation Fighting Blindness, will interview Sam and Casey about their experiences with vision loss and discuss their commitment to creating music that celebrates diversity and belonging.

Tune in for the livestream on the Foundation Fighting Blindness’ Facebook. Although the event is free, you can still contribute, as all net proceeds will go towards the Foundation’s mission.
