Patrick Henry Hughes (Jimmy Bellinger) was a talented musician who always wanted to be a part of something bigger than himself. He dreamed of one day joining the University of Louisville marching band, but there was one problem: Patrick Henry was born without eyes or the ability to walk.
Before he was born, his father Patrick John (Burgess Jenkins) had his own goals of athletic glory for Patrick Henry. Now, will he be willing to truly sacrifice to help his son achieve his dreams? I AM POTENTIAL is the inspiring true story of sacrifice, perseverance and realizing one’s God given potential.
A father’s journey to help his blind and wheel-chair bound son to overcome impossible odds and allow the world to see his God-given potential.
“I Am Potential” is based on the amazing true story of Patrick Henry Hughes. Patrick Henry was born with two incredibly rare conditions. One caused him to be born without eyes, and another prevented his joints from forming properly. This is the story of how a father learned to sacrifice all of his own dreams and plans for the sake of his son. At his home in Louisville, KY Patrick Henry continued to face opposition through surgery after surgery. While his father worked to provide for the expensive procedures, Patrick Henry dreamed of one day becoming a member of a real marching band.
Patrick Henry had to fight all the odds as he became an accomplished pianist, trumpet player, and singer, despite all of the challenges. The Hughes family’s story reminds us all to look at the things we have, rather than the things we don’t, as we all try to reach our God-given potential.
