"I can't see, I can't walk, and can't do lots of other things. With all this, people might ask ‘How can I bear to live?' but I don't see it that way. Through my trials, God has given me experiences that taught me important lessons about life, which help get me through each and every day. The greatest gift I can give back to others is to share those experiences and lessons."—Patrick Henry Hughes

As featured on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and Oprah, this is the powerful story of young, blind musician and his courageous lessons for living with faith.

Patrick Henry Hughes was born with a rare genetic disorder that left him without eyes and physically disabled. But he was also blessed with exceptional musical talent, able to play the piano at the age of two. Now, at age nineteen, he is a nationally known pianist, singer, and trumpeter who has performed at the Kennedy Center. But he's best known for playing in the University of Louisville marching band, while his devoted father pushes him in formation in his wheelchair. With determined optimism and courage, Hughes has made "I am potential" his mantra and defied the impossible at every turn. His extraordinary journey will prove inspirational for anyone facing challenges in their own life.
