120 E. Main St., Grand Prairie, TX 75051
The purpose of this conference is also to exhort youth to stay in school and go to college. This event will link audience with Internationally famous artist Tony Melendez, a Nicaraguan American Singer, Composer, Guitarist and Writer who was borne without arms. His mother took Thalidomide while pregnant which caused his disability. Melendez has learned to play the guitar with his feet.
On September 15, 1987, Melendez sang "Never Be the Same" performing in a special presentation for Pope John Paul II, the Pope descended from his chair kissed Tony's head embracing him and saying: "Tony my wish to you, is to continue of giving this hope to all of the people." This inspired him to help and dedicate his life to help others. His special common sense approach is based on human quality. Tony Melendez exhorts his audience to live their lives respecting moral and family values. He is capable to inspire others to change their lives for the best potential outcome.
Our 2018 Musical Concert a Real Success!
