Patrick Henry Hughes: a blind participating in concerts of the Louisville marching orchestra
Patrick is a unique young man born without eyes and unable to fully straighten his arms and legs, which made his movement impossible.
Two steel rods were surgically attached to his spine to correct scoliosis. Despite all these circumstances, he overcame his many physical problems and succeeded as a student and musician. Patrick learned to play the piano and the trumpet and began singing. With the help of his father, he participated in concerts by marching bands at the Louisville University School of Music.
A virtuoso piano player, vocalist, and trumpet player, Patrick won many competitions and received awards for his willpower and spirit, for what it took for the young man to achieve all this. Many publications and television channels have written about him and talked about him because such huge willpower cannot be unmarked.
