Patrick Hughes’ parents absolutely wanted to have a baby in their life. My father always dreamed of cycling, fishing, and experiencing many adventures together.
Unfortunately, the father’s dreams quickly vanished, Patrick was born without eyes and with irreversible limbs. Little Patrick was finally fitted with artificial eyes and used a wheelchair, but early in his young child’s years, Patrick showed his family that he wouldn’t let his handicap slow down.
One day, his mother pressed a key on the piano and found that after a try or two, Patrick would find the same key. At just two years old, Patrick made some amazing abilities in playing the piano… He learned songs by feel and memory and of course the help of his father
He would usually play the songs “You Are My Sunshine” and “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.” So Dad now decided that “I was ecstatic. We are not going to play baseball, but we’re going to share moments playing music together.”
The time he got to the elementary school, Patrick was already good at playing the piano in public. And then he went to college at the University of Louisville, the music program teacher suggested to join Patrick to the marching band.
Patrick now has shown us a symbol of the impossible and things cannot be that hard, he proved anyone else wrong to be a pianist and trumpet player, His father’s struggles and dedication did help him take steps forward by building his own music career. Together they have accomplished permit the wheelchair-bound Patrick to join and be there.
Patrick’s point of view towards life is beautiful: he said “God made me blind and unable to walk. But he gave me the musical gifts which made me have a great opportunity to reach people.”
