Following His Dreams, Armless Pianist Wins ‘Chinas Got Talent’

“For people like me, there were only two options. One was to abandon all dreams, which would lead to a quick, hopeless death. The other was to struggle without arms to live an outstanding life,”

These are the words of an outstanding 23-year-old young man who followed his dreams despite the odds.

LIU WEI was 10 years old when he had to have both of his arms amputated after he suffered an electrical shock while playing a game of hide and seek. By the age of 18, he had learned to play the piano with his toes – even after being told by a piano teacher that he never would. It was challenging but he didn’t give up. In October of 2010, he was crowned the winner of ‘Chinas Got Talent’.  His final touching performance – with a very appropriate title – is below.
