On Monday, July 15th, “Lookin’ For Love” singer Johnny Lee shared his health updates and is now seeking for his fans prayers for upcoming not one but two brain surgeries.
He shared the update via a facebook post and wrote:
“August 7th I’m having brain surgery in Houston because of my Parkinson’s disease. It will help me walk better. August 21st will be the 2nd part of my brain surgery. I will then go back 2 weeks later and get a battery put in. I’m doing this all because I’m having problems walking. I will be fine. I’m asking for prayers. God gave me the talent, and I plan on using it until the day I die. Thank you!”
For the past two years, this 73-year-old singer is hitting the road for their Urban Cowboy Reunion Tour with his official partner, Mickey Gilley. Their professional relationship started in the early 1970s at the famous Gilley’s Club in Pasadena, Texas. From that point, their career hit it off from a bar singer to the singer of five number-one singles: One in a Million,” “Bet Your Heart on Me,” “The Yellow Rose” featuring Lane Brody and “You Could’ve Heard a Heart Break.”
Since 2008 the singer never put his guitar down even after his Parkinson’s diagnosis last summer shadowed his life. He also remained a recording artist with his most 2006 album: You Ain’t Never Been To Texas.
Here’s to a speedy recovery, Johnny!
