Friday Night Tunes - The Most Inspirational Performance Ever

By
Mortgage and Lending with Larry Bettag - Cherry Creek Mortgage
I was in Denver this week, listening to some radio station when the DJ tells the story about a guy by the name of George Dennehy. He was born with no arms. His story, from what I hear, is that he applied for a major college music scholarship. I saw this video and it's absolutely incredible. In any event....Here's George Dennehy doing his rendition of IRIS from the Goo Goo Dolls.

How can you not think how lucky you are, to have arms when you see someone without.
