Tony Melendez was born with arms but that has never stopped him from using his God-given talents! Indeed, Tony can play the guitar with his feet. On September 15, 1987, Meléndez sang Never Be the Same while playing the guitar with his feet in a special performance for Pope John Paul II.

Visibly moved, the Pope descended from his chair and embraced Meléndez. The Pope told Meléndez, “My wish to you, is to continue of giving [sic] this hope to all, all the people,” which inspired him.(Courtesy *Wikipedia)

On September 18th, 2016 Tony performed a special concert right here in Johnston County at St. Ann Catholic! What a great performance and message he provided. Have a look below at a video and slideshow compiled from the day. Enjoy!
