One musician is overcoming his disability and proving nothing is impossible. Even though the man you are meeting was born without arms, he's found a way to become a guitar player. When you watch George Dennehy play his guitar it is effortless. Also a surprise, the guitar is being played with his feet. Getting to this point was a struggle, rejected by his village in Romania at birth, and his family sacrificing their love in hopes he would have a better life. After a year and a half neglected in an orphanage, he was adopted. Life got better, and at 8 years old, everything changed.

After years of feeling sorry for himself, he had a different perspective. Now, music is what keeps his head up. Acoustic and emotional. Music that speaks to people. George is traveling the world, sharing his story and perspective that changed his life. Right now, his original video Strawberry Faire has more than 715,589 views on YouTube.
