Tony’s mother was prescribed thalidomide during her pregnancy, so he was born without arms. After playing the guitar for Pope John Paul II in 1987, the Pontiff was so moved by his music he leaped off a four-foot stage to embrace Tony with the kiss that was seen around the world and said to him, “Tony you are truly a courageous young man, my wish is that you continue to give hope to all the people”.
Thus began Tony’s ministry generating hope and bringing people’s hearts toward Jesus Christ. He explains, “Music has become several gifts to me: a form of prayer, a means of feeding my family, and a way for an armless singer to embrace your heart.” Knowing how important life is, Tony strongly believes in justice and living with dignity. Let him inspire you on July 30th.
