Tony Meléndez

Tony Meléndez (born 1962) is a Nicaraguan American guitar player, composer and singer and songwriter who was born without arms. His mother took Thalidomide while pregnant, which caused his disability. Meléndez has learned to play the guitar with his feet.

When I first heard his story and watched him play, I could hardly see for the tears as I wept. Here is proof that we can do anything in the world if we set our mind to it. God damn it, this man even drives a car!

Never, ever, let me hear you say “I can’t!” You can – if you believe in yourself.
