Deaf Hip Hop Artist Sean Forbes and Composer Jake Bass Collaborate with the DSO for The Deaf & Loud Symphonic Experience

Ann Delisi talks with Detroiters, Sean Forbes and Jake Bass about how, with Sean being deaf, they create music together and the extraordinary impact that Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” had on Sean becoming a hip-hop artist. Given that Jake’s Dad, Jeff Bass, wrote “Lose Yourself” and will be performing it with his son and the DSO, is truly a full circle moment.
