George is capturing attention all over the web (and the world) for his unique talents. Because he was born without arms, he sings and plays music from his heart using his feet. George also 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 an 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 that their own goals are very much within reach. George gained worldwide attention last year after he posted a video of himself covering the Goo Goo Dolls song “Iris” on the web. George’s story went global and he received media coverage from as nearby as his own hometown and as far away as London and Sydney. Gawker.com called George the “one man inspiration band.” Then an astonishing thing happened: the band themselves saw the video and loved it. They invited George to share the stage with them and perform ‘Iris’ to an enthusiastic and excited crowd of 7,000 fans at Musikfest, an annual weeklong event held in Bethlehem, PA. His career has continued to take off. CBS News.Com named his video one of the “Best of 2012”. George had the opportunity to open for and play with award-winning Christian artist Jeremy Camp in Dallas. He was profiled in an Australian TV feature that had over a million viewers. He traveled to his birth country of Romania to appear on live television there and to have a surprise reunion with relatives, including four sisters he had never met. There have also been trips to Nashville to record original music. George’s first song is titled “It’s a Gift” and the writers felt it was a perfect match for his life story. As for the song and it’s lyrical content, George says: “ The song is so perfect for my message – life is a beautiful thing. Every life has meaning, purpose, and worth.”
