Madi Davis has been featured in Southlake Style's, first of a three part series, Medical Obstacles Overcome.
"Sitting in front of the television watching a talent reality show at age 6, Madi Davis made the decision right then to pursue a musical career. However, Madi suffered severe hearing loss. With a history of ear complications from birth, Madi’s symptoms had only worsened. When she saw Dr. Bob, at age 5, Madi had almost complete hearing loss in both ears. After a handful of successful surgeries to remove tissue growth and repair the middle ears, Madi remembers that things finally started to turn around. “I thought I was just a bad student,” Madi recalls. “But it turns out, because I couldn’t hear the teachers, I struggled. Once my hearing improved, I excelled in school.”
And Madi didn’t just making strides as a student. The musical ambitions she had at such an early age came to fruition. Over the years, choir led to piano, and piano led to guitar, and soon she was writing her own music. Recently, at age 15, Madi auditioned for The Voice, and she’ll be traveling to San Francisco in the coming months for her second call back. Madi is quick to attribute her successes, in part, to Dr. Bob. “I don’t think I could do any of the things I am doing now without him,” Madi says. “Simply put, I couldn’t write music if I couldn’t hear, and I wouldn’t be where I am today experiencing what I am if it weren’t for Dr. Bob.”" ~ Reisner, A. - Southlake Style, January 2015
