Father Hears Daughter Sing for the First Time
A man from St. Peters, Missouri who has been deaf for the past 50 years got a Christmas miracle this year! Ken Stehle’s 15 year-old-daughter Ashley is a passionate singer. The freshmen is part of Villa Duchesne High School’s advanced show choir. Her father never heard her utter a single note until this past Sunday.
Ken received a new hearing aid that requires him to wear a receiver around his neck. The new technology also requires Ashley to wear a special microphone. Her voice is then picked up by Ken’s receiver and transmitted to his hearing aid.
The song she chose? “Daddy, Please Come Home for Christmas.”
“It’s amazing, I had goosebumps all over me. I’m very proud of my daughter,” Ken Stehle said.
