Apl.de.Ap Legally Blind

The 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards - Show

I was amazed and intrigued at the same time when Apl.de.Ap, of the Black Eyed Peas, revealed to People Magazine that he is legally blind.  He suffers from a rare disease called nystagmus, which causes his vision to be blurry quite often.  He claims to have overcome this though.

“I doubted myself for a long time… I’m comfortable not using my vision. I weave around my problems.” (popeater.com)

With this disease, he still goes on stage as a member of the Black Eyed Peas entertaining millions around the globe.  I am amazed at how he’s able to perform and excited at the same time that he has overcome this and found ways to adapt and live with it.

He’ll be entertaining the world with the rest of the group as they are the half time entertainment for this year’s Super Bowl in Arlington – which is coming up on February 6th.
