"Hearing, like all my other senses, is so precious to me..." The Groupe Forget Foundation team had the opportunity to let Ima experience a simulated moderate hearing loss before a performance in her Precious tour. At first, she had some trouble hearing her musicians' comments but then she met the En Action sans Audition challenge with enthusiasm, entertaining us with the song Smile.

The En Action sans Audition challenge!

One out of ten people in Québec suffer from hearing loss. It’s a daily challenge for 800,000 people.


For 30 minutes, several celebrities will experience what it’s like to lose some of their hearing. We filled the participants ears with silicone to simulate a hearing loss of approximately 40 decibels. We then had them carry out their activities as usual.
