Marlee Matlin - Deaf Star Marlee Matlin Set For Award From Hearing Foundation Gala

Deaf actress Marlee Matlin is to be honoured for her work raising awareness and funds for a hearing charity.
The Oscar winner pulled in over $1 million (£625,000) for the Starkey Hearing Foundation as a contestant on U.S. reality show Celebrity Apprentice earlier this year (11), and now bosses at the organisation are to recognise her efforts at their annual So The World May Hear Awards.
Former U.S. President Bill Clinton will also be feted for his commitment to the charity, which donates hearing aids to people around the globe.
Reba MCEntire, Miley Cyrus and Meat Loaf have signed up to perform at the gala in St. Paul, Minnesota on 24 July (11).
