Vision Loss Became A Catalyst For MusicThere is no way of knowing how one would respond to losing vision, either temporarily or permanently. In either case, it is sure to be a frightening experience. However, some people take the hand they're dealt and dive headfirst into their passion. Singer, songwriter Brooke Moriber's sudden, temporary vision loss became a catalyst for music. She explains that her eye disease and subsequent treatments gave her a better understanding of who she was as an artist and what she wanted her music to be.
"[Since then], after a year of the A&R process with Reviver [Records], I felt like we were right at the cusp of figuring out who I was [as an artist], but I felt like something was missing," she continues. "Then, it was like a light bulb went off in my brain and I was like, 'Oh my god, I remember why I started writing music in the first place and this is what I want to share with people. I want my music to be healing. I want to connect with people so that they don't feel alone in whatever they're going through'."
