Tony Melendez Ministries (music)

A truly inspiring musician, Tony Melendez was born without arms because his mother had been given thalidomide. Despite this handicap, he learned to play the guitar with his feet. He composes religious music, and even performed for the Pope in 1987. His aim through his music and ministry is to be an “instrument…of integrity.” Listen to some of Melendez’s music, and discuss how your young adults would persevere through such a major handicap.
