Sorry I don't get it, I speak British English fluently and as far as I know in UK/Ireland "to hear" is used with the same meaning as listening (and understanding) only in few specific contexts (like for example exclamations "Hear!Hear!","let's hear", "Do you hear me!?"=do yo get me!? "I hear you!"=I know what you mean) in British English. What does this sentence mean exactly? That everybody is using their auditory organs as I speak?
"Everybody" represents the third person singular like "he" or "she". We say "everybody is here" or "everybody has a car".
The verb "listens" is not plural - it is simply conjugated with the "s" ending because of the singular noun: everybody.
