When the veteran singer and songwriter was honing his skills on the way to becoming famous – he often worked in smoke filled environments. “I still work in places around the USA where there is smoke,” states Mr. Williams. “Places like Las Vegas casinos and other venues have smoking.”
When Lenny Williams appears in smoke filled venues today – the effects are noticeable. “I usually have red eyes and I start coughing,” states Mr. Williams. According to the United States Surgeon General, there is no safe level of exposure, to second hand smoke. Even brief exposure can have adverse effects on the cardiovascular system. “I would love to perform in smoke free environments,” Williams added.
