Liu Wei Challenges Susan Boyle By Playing Piano With His Toes

by | 14th, August 2010

LIU Wei raises the stakes in the worldwide bid to be the next Susan Boyle by playing the piano with his toes.

Wei has no arms. It follows that she has no hands and fingers. Both arms were lost when she touched a high-voltage wire during a game of hide-and-seek. She was aged 10.

It may come as little surprise to know what Wei lives in China, the land that health and safety forgot.

Now aged 23, Wei is playing Richard Clayderman’s Marriage D’amour with his toes on China’s Got Talent. Says he:

“For people like me, there were only two options. One was to abandon all dreams, which would lead to a quick, hopeless death; the other was to struggle without arms to live an outstanding life.”

He is self-taught.
