Your Real Champion® 

 “Step Up with Tony Melendez“

Your Real Champion – “Step Up with Tony Melendez”

Tony Melendez is a singer and songwriter who plays the guitar.  Unlike other musicians, Tony was born without arms and with a club foot.  His family had the wisdom to treat him as if he were normal, so he adapted and learned to use his feet to do everything. By the age of 16, he taught himself how to play the guitar… with his feet. When Pope John Paul II came to America in 1987, the youth of Los Angeles chose Tony to represent them and share his gift of music.  At that moment he realized that his life mission is to continue to spread his message of hope and inspiration.

Each week, we highlight the Real Champions in your life! Your family, friends, or colleagues who go the extra mile to help others in their community.
