State House Of Representatives Praise Massey Brothers For Their Work To Stop Hearing Loss Around The World
Georgia’s state House of Representatives honored kid show faves Kyle and Chris Massey Thursday for being stand up men on and off television.
Elected officials read a resolution Feb. 18 lauding the Massey Brothers for their humanitarian and philanthropic work as well as being the first African-American siblings to be nominated for an Emmy in the same category at the same time.
“It’s really an honor,” Kyle Massey told BOSSIP. “I don’t really do the things that I do for awards. Changing lives, that’s the award for me.”
Chris, 26 and Kyle, 24, were also recognized for their work with the Starkey Hearing Foundation, which works to end hearing loss worldwide. Chris Massey said the brothers’ travel on missions to different far flung places each year to help the nonprofit distribute hearing aids to the deaf. The men also partnered with Dallas Austin to launch their own offshoot initiative, “Listen Carefully,” that teaches kids the dangers of putting the volume up too high on headphones.
