Professional Speaker, Singer, Song-Writer, Entertainer, TK Productions Inc. Terry-Kelly.com
At the age of two, Terry Kelly’s eyes were removed due to retinoblastoma, a rare, hereditary cancer condition! At the age of seven, he left his home in St. John’s, Newfoundland to attend the Halifax School for the Blind, a residential school in Nova Scotia. Spending nine months a year away from home was not easy for Terry, however, the tough love extended from his surrogate house parents, retired military personnel, initiated Terry’s quest for challenge and developed his love of life. As a musician this Newfoundland native has released seven full-length recordings, has shared the stage with Symphony Orchestras, and has performed his original music in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and for the troops in Afghanistan. He is most recognized for his inspirational song, “A Pittance of Time”. As a result of an invitation from General (Retired) Rick Hillier to become a member of Team Canada Afghanistan, Terry traveled to Afghanistan and performed there for our troops. Due to his many significant achievements, Terry Kelly has been invested into the Order of Canada; received honourary doctorates from the University of King’s College and Saint Mary’s University; has received the Canadian Country Music Association’s Humanitarian Award; was inducted into the Canadian Disability Hall of Fame; and has been honoured to serve as Honorary Colonel for 14 Wing Greenwood. As a professional speaker, Terry uses his life experiences to touch the hearts of many and has motivated tens of thousands to overcome personal challenges and live their lives to the fullest.
