Jose Feliciano: Blind and Famous in New York City

Jose Feliciano is one of the world's most celebrated guitarists and performers. In a fifty-year recording career, he's released almost seventy albums and won nine Grammy Awards. But he didn't have an easy start in life, having been born blind into an impoverished family in Puerto Rico. His parents moved the family to New York to give him a chance of a better life and it was there that his passion for music developed. (Photo credit: Rick Bronks.)
