Guitarist Uses Feet To Play Instrument

Posted: Updated:

SMYRNA, Tenn. (AP) - When George Dennehy was a young boy, he never dreamed he would spend his career as a motivational speaker and musician.

But the armless teenager has spent the last couple of years sharing his story and encouraging others, and he'll be on stage at the ONEless benefit dinner to speak November 7.

Dennehy's story begins in a poor orphanage in Romania. Born without arms, his condition was "viewed as a curse," he said. So his parents turned him over to the orphanage, where he became malnourished.

A newsletter from Bethany Christian Services shared his story and eventually, Dennehy was adopted by a family in America.

Dennehy eventually learned to play the guitar - which has helped him overcome shyness and self-consciousness.
