Tony was born in Nicaragua without arms. His mother was prescribed thalidomide for morning sickness and had no idea how it would affect her unborn son. Tony learned to do almost everything with his feet and taught himself to play the guitar with his toes. In 1987, he performed for Pope St. John Paul II as part of an internationally broadcast event that set his musical career into high gear. An award-winning artist who has released six albums and played in more than forty countries, Tony shares a message of hope, encouragement, and faith. He resides in Branson, Missouri, with his wife and children.
