About Tony Melendez

A thalidomide baby, Tony was born without arms because his mother was prescribed thalidomide a drug used to help calm morning sickness during her pregnancy. He was brought to the Los Angeles area from Nicaragua to be fitted with artificial arms. He wore them until he was ten, when he disposed of them. “I didn’t feel comfortable,” he explains, “I could use my feet so much more.”

Today, Tony is a highly talented composer and musician. He travels internationally, moving people with his stories and song. He is known everywhere he goes as someone who beats the odds, works with the gifts God gives him, and changes the world – one song at a time.
