Armless New Jersey boy inspiring others to play music

CREATED Jan. 24, 2014

Ten-year-old Jahmir Wallace says he's inspired by Stevie Wonder, but others are inspired by him.

Wallace, who attends school in Phillipsburg, N.J., has no arms, but that doesn't stop him from playing the trumpet.

He was born without arms and does everything with his feet.

Administrators and employees of a local music store made a special stand for the boy's trumpet and Jahmir took it from there.

Wallace has wanted to play the trumpet since the third grade. He played his first note four months ago.

The young boy wants everyone to know that if they would like to try and play an instrument, just go ahead and try it.
