If you have not had the honour of meeting Juston Whaling, read on! Juston is a character who creates smiles with everyone he encounters each day. He has a vivid imagination and loves to talk about what he is doing and share his stories. Juston is a multi-genre artist who appeared in the Chrysalink earlier this year for his clay artwork.
This time we feature him for his volunteer time at St. Michael’s Care Facility playing the piano for the seniors. He created a song for them and plays it each week as the last song. The seniors who come to listen to Justin are filled with smiles, joy, and happiness. The audience gets up to dance, others have their feet tapping, and hands are clapping. Juston amazes every time he plays. Juston has been playing piano since he was a toddler and has taught himself the different chords by ear.
What makes Juston a true artist is that he was able to create his stories, his clay, and his music despite being visually impaired. His is an amazing story of the human spirit and we invite you to view two videos of Juston playing for his fans at the care facility:
