When: Thu., Oct. 15, 6 p.m. 2009
Juan Manuel Pineda, along with a group of gracious and talented industry musicians, will perform a compilation of songs from his first ever CD. The CD was produced through donations and time from a group of dedicated individuals and will be used to raise funds for Juan’s future education and the Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos orphanage, his home in El Salvador. Juan’s music is a reflection of his extraordinary life journey, including being born with a cleft palate, caught in a fire, losing his legs and becoming orphaned all before the age of ten. Visits to Chicago caused a newfound love for music, which lead to the recording of songs that were created out of gratitude for all those who have helped him along the way.
