Submitted photo Guitarist Tony Melendez, who was born with no arms, will perform a free concert at Temple Baptist Church on Monday.

He was born without arms, and was told he couldn’t do it. But Tony Melendez proved them wrong. Melendez, who has performed for Pope John Paul II and at the 1989 World Series among other venues across the globe, plays guitar with his feet.

At 6:30 p.m. Monday, Melendez will perform a free concert at Temple Baptist Church. The event, “Give Thanks With a Grateful Heart,” is sponsored by the Ruston Area Alliance for Ministry. Melendez and his band perform a range of acoustic songs from pop hits by the Beatles, Eric Clapton and John Mayor to “The Lord’s Prayer” and original tunes.
