Patrick Henry Hughes and his father share an incredible story of tragedy to triumph
and have been featured on ESPN, Oprah, The Ellen Show, Extreme Make Over Home
Edition, The Today Show, all the major news networks, Million Dollar Round Table,
The Grand Ole Opry, People Magazine, Sports Illustrated, and many, many others.
Patrick Henry is a remarkable young man who was born without eyes and without the
ability to fully straighten his arms and legs, making him unable to walk. Additionally,
two steel rods were surgically attached to Patrick's spine to correct scoliosis.
In the face of incredible odds from birth, Patrick has overcome these physical issues
to excel as a musician, student, performer and public speaker. Patrick started
playing the piano at the age of only nine months and also plays the trumpet and
sings. He even participated in the University of Louisville Marching Band for five
seasons with help from his father, Patrick John Hughes, who tirelessly maneuvered
Patrick’s wheelchair through the formations during practices and games with the
other 220+ members of the Cardinal Marching Band. Along with marching band,
Patrick's dad spent his days attending classes on campus assisting his son while
working the overnight shift five nights a week for a major package shipping company
so that Patrick Henry could achieve his greatest potential. Patrick Henry was usually
a straight 'A' student, having received only 3 'B's' during his entire primary/secondary
educational experience and graduated from the Univ. of Louisville magna cum laude
in 2010. Patrick was a Spanish language major and speaks Spanish fluently.
Patrick and his dad have made appearances all across the United States and have
even shared their story in Asia, Canada, South America, Central America and
Europe. Their first book, I AM POTENTIAL, is published and available around the
country and the world in different languages. The book has also been turned into a
feature length film called I Am Potential. Patrick has recorded 2 CD's.
