In this world, there are two kinds of successful people—those who give back to others with less than them and those who only give back to themselves. Thankfully, it appears that Martin Garrix is the first one of the two. The Dutchman is one of the youngest names in the electronic music industry and simultaneously one of the most well-known. He was able to use his influence to stage a concert for the deaf community, who got a sensory experience like no other.
In a recent partnership with 7UP, Garrix had a unique performance where he played for a wonderfully enthusiastic group of deaf individuals. No, it is not impossible for those without hearing to enjoy the thrill of listening to live music. Instead, they enjoy it in a different way—a way that involves more vibrations and visuals. While deaf people may not listen to music the way most others do, one thing we can all agree on is that music is a universal language. It moves and unites us in unique ways, and its history will continue to prove that.
