I AM POTENTIAL by Patrick Henry Hughes (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below). “Hughes’s knowing but uplifting tone balances out the tragedies, making this an inspiring addition to the growing self-help-memoir shelf.” (Publishers Weekly) Patrick Henry Hughes was born with a rare genetic disorder that left him blind and physically disabled. But he was also blessed with exceptional musical talent, for which he is nationally recognized at the age of nineteen. Here, he shares his courageous lessons for living with faith and defying the impossible at every turn. Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves. NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Earphones® Award-winning narrators Grover Gardner, Malcolm Hillgartner, and Paul Michael Garcia. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here. “Three exceptional voice talents bring distinct sensibilities and views to the recording but also work together to give this heroic memoir impact and continuity.” (AudioFile) • EXPERIENCE.

But he was also blessed with exceptional musical talent—able to play the piano at the age of two and now, at age nineteen, is a nationally known pianist, singer, and trumpeter who has performed at the Kennedy Center. But he’s best known for playing in the University of Louisville marching band, while his devoted father pushes him in formation in his wheelchair. With determined optimism and courage, Hughes has made “I am potential” his mantra and defied the impossible at every turn.
