George Dennehy (Miracle Music) | International Motivational Speaker
George has a powerful message to share. Because George has overcome so many challenges in his own life, he believes that every individual has a purpose and absolutely anything is possible. People are surprised by his life story, including his brush with death in a Romanian orphanage and his adoption by his U.S. family at the age of one. George started his musical journey by learning to play the cello at the age of eight. He advanced in classical music until he was able to play cello with regional orchestras. With the cello as his launching pad he has taught himself guitar, electric bass and basic piano. Regardless of the setting, people in his audience are always inspired, deeply touched and often realize their own goals are very much within reach. SPEAKING TOPICS: * Overcoming Obstacles George explains the multitude of unique obstacles he has had to overcome in life as he faces each day without arms - and how he has become a stronger person because of it. He then encourages the audience to see their own obstacles in a more positive light, knowing anything is possible when they find the will and strength to never give up. George mixes in some humorous stories and a demonstration of his incredible musical abilities. * It's a Gift Much of what we can do could also be done by others. But we all have that special area where our individual gifts really stand out .... In this message George will focus on and demonstrates his own one in a million gift of playing music. He started his musical journey by being the only person in the world to play a cello with his feet. He has since learned to play guitar, electric bass, and even piano. He reminds the audience that we all have talents and gifts that make us unique, and that one of the most fulfilling things in life is finding that unique gift of your own - and using it to shine light on the world. * Life Story George shares about many of the biggest personal milestones in his ever evolving story, including: his brush with death in Romania , learning to play the cello with his feet a the age of eight, being bullied as a youth, becoming depressed , going viral on the web, being reunited with his biological family in Romania, and sharing the stage with some of the biggest names in the music industry. Original songs and music act as a beautiful background to the story. The audience is challenged to think about their own story and the potential for approaching each day in a positive light.
