Nick on the Ukulele: An inspiration

As posted  on Flickr and written by ColleeninHawaii,

“Nick Acosta (13) was born with one hand and arm. Still, his strong mother Kim never taught him the words ‘you can’t’ always encouraging Nick ‘you can do whatever you put your mind to.’

Nick Acosta was in Roy Sakuma’s Ukulele School, when he caught legendary ukulele virtuoso Sakuma’s eye – and ear.”
