This is a story about an orphan who was born with a cleft palate and lost both legs in a fire yet was given the opportunity to foster his talent for music. Now Juan Manuel wants to give back by hosting a benefit concert to raise money for the amputee children in Haiti.
Along with other gracious artists, the Step Forward Tour will premier in Chicago on Friday, May 13. We share his story to invite you to get involved. Concert revenue will benefit Friends of the Orphans for St. Damien Hospital.
