Sparsh Shah (a.k.a Purhythm) is a 17-year-old child prodigy, singer, songwriter, rapper, inspirational speaker, and philanthropist. He was born with an incurable disease called Osteogenesis Imperfecta, which makes his bones extremely fragile/brittle. Even a hard handshake can break his bones. He cannot bear weight on his hands and legs, and hence cannot walk or run like other normal kids. He had more than 140 fractures and multiple rod surgeries (8 rods and 22 screws in his body) so far in 17 years of his life and God knows how many more are yet to come. But God has gifted him with a divine voice and a brilliant mind. Sparsh has won prizes in 9 singing competitions and done over 200 live performances in 9 countries and at prestigious venues such as Madison Square Garden, Radio City Music Hall, Prudential Center, Metlife Stadium, CitiField, National Center of Performing Arts, CosmoCaxia Barcelona, etc.

The positive lessons I learned not only made my life better personally, but they also, along with my parents, gave me the motivation to speak publicly to others. When I was six years old, I gave my first speech, which was all about music, at my annual Indian classical recital. However, I always knew the power that my story had to inspire others to transcend their boundaries in life, and this, of course, translated into my career as a motivational speaker.
