Jeff Healey Online:
On Friday, May 27th at Massey Hall in Toronto an incredible line-up of Jeff Healey’s friends and peers will take the stage in celebration of what would have been Jeff’s 50th birthday. Fans are encouraged to join this celebration of the life and legacy of the legendary, Canadian music icon and one of Toronto’s favourite sons – Jeff Healey.
All proceeds from this event are being donated to World Eye Cancer Hope. World Eye Cancer Hope is a charity designated by the Jeff Healey Estate that does amazing work with childhood retinoblastoma – the same cancer that took Jeff’s sight.
The Jeff Healey Estate, in conjunction with Convexe Entertainment/Universal Music, released Heal My Soul in March 2016. Heal My Soul includes never heard before tracks recorded by Jeff Healey. The music on Heal My Soul captures Healey in full flight, displaying the virtuosity that made the Toronto native one of the most revered musicians in the world.
Jeff Healey is remembered as one of the most outstanding guitarists and all-around musicians of the past 30 years. Jeff lost his sight during early childhood due to retinoblastoma, a rare form of eye cancer. Playing guitar since the age of 3, he developed the distinctive lap-style guitar technique that helped bring him international attention by his late teens. A Grammy nominee and JUNO Award winner, Jeff’s five album releases with The Jeff Healey Band totaled millions of sales worldwide. Over the course of Jeff Healey’s career, he also shared stages and earned the admiration of countless other musicians including; B.B. King, Eric Clapton, The Rolling Stones, George Harrison, Stevie Ray Vaughan and the Allman Brothers Band. Jeff Healey died on March 2, 2008 at 41 years old after a three year battle with sarcoma cancer.
