There's a moment in every artist's life when he knows that music is not only his path, but his destiny. Justin grew up singing in church, but at a Toronto Raptors' basketball game in his hometown 15 years ago, he knew where his life's journey would take him.
When 14-year old Hines won a vocal competition to sing the National Anthem- both the Canadian and American- at the game and his world opened up before him. "In that moment, it all seemed possible," he recalls. "The performance eliminated any stage fright." Thrown in the deep end, Hines, who has performed professionally ever since, realized he could not only survive, but thrive.
Hines has thrived all his life against the odds - Hines has Larsen Syndrome, a joint dislocation condition that confines him to a wheelchair. "The reality is I don't really look at my situation as that big a deal," he says. "We all have our things that challenge us, just some people's are a little more visible in the forefront. Mine is very apparent, whereas others wear it on the inside."
