Patrick Henry Hughes and his father share an incredible story of tragedy to triumph and have been featured on
ESPN, Oprah, The Ellen Show, Extreme Make Over Home Edition, The Today Show, all the major news
networks, Million Dollar Round Table, The Grand Ole Opry, People Magazine, Sports Illustrated, and many,
many others. Patrick Henry is a remarkable young man who was born without eyes and without the ability to
fully straighten his arms and legs, making him unable to walk. Additionally, two steel rods were surgically
attached to Patrick’s spine to correct scoliosis.

In the face of incredible odds from birth, Patrick has overcome these physical issues to excel as a musician,
student, performer and public speaker. Patrick started playing the piano at the age of only nine months and
also plays the trumpet and sings. He even participated in the University of Louisville Marching Band for five
seasons with help from his father, Patrick John Hughes, who tirelessly maneuvered Patrick s wheelchair
through the formations during practices and games with the other 220+ members of the Cardinal Marching
Band. Along with marching band, Patrick’s dad spent his days attending classes on campus assisting his son
while working the overnight shift five nights a week for a major package shipping company so that Patrick
Henry could achieve his greatest potential. Patrick Henry was usually a straight ‘A’ student, having received
only 3 ‘B’s’ during his entire primary/secondary educational experience and graduated from the Univ. of
Louisville magna cum laude in 2010. Patrick was a Spanish language major and speaks Spanish fluently.

Patrick and his dad have made appearances all across the United States and have even shared their story in
Asia, Canada, South America, Central America and Europe. Their first book, I AM POTENTIAL, is published and
available around the country and the world in different languages. The book has also been turned into a
feature length film called I Am Potential. Patrick has recorded 2 CD’s.
