Just hours before rocking out onstage with his band Hollywood Vampires,Johnny Depp took time to help dozens of Brazilians hear music for the first time.
The actor and his wife, Amber Heard, partnered with the Starkey Hearing Foundation on Thursday to help distribute hundreds of hearing aids to those in need before performing at the Rock in Rio music festival in Rio de Janeiro.
Depp’s band, which also features Alice Cooper and Joe Perry, announced their involvement with the charity initiative just last month, reported Rolling Stone.
Heard, arm-in-arm with a recipient, teared up while watching the Black Massstar help fit Brazilians with their new aids. The Starkey Hearing Foundation fits more than 100,000 hearing aids a year to children and adults in need, according to the charity’s website. (credit)
This is truly one of the best things that I have read all day. Johnny Depp is one of my all time favorite celebrities, and it’s not just because of his talent either. He seems to be one of the nicest people in Hollywood. There are many accounts of him taking his time to meet with as many fans as possible, he dresses as Jack Sparrow and visits hospitals, and here he is. He isn’t just talking about a charity, he is truly involved in it. Going out there and helping these children and adults be fitted so they can hear, incredible.
I would like to add that Alice Cooper, one of the craziest rock stars in the world was there helping as well.
Amber and Johnny keep a relatively low profile as a couple, a few red carpet appearances here and there but nothing too crazy. I do believe that they are some of the good celebrities though, you know not a part of the Illuminati.
I had to share this picture which is also on People.com of Amber getting emotional while a woman cries after hearing for the first time.
