Sparsh Shah

Inspirational Speaker
Sparsh Shah (a.k.a Purhythm) is a 20-year-old prodigy, singer, songwriter, rapper, inspirational speaker, philanthropist and Guinness World Records holder. He was born with an incurable disease called Osteogenesis Imperfecta, which makes his bones extremely fragile/brittle, due to which 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 18 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 300 live performances in 9 countries and at prestigious venues such as Madison Square Garden, Radio City Music Hall, Prudential Center, Metlife Stadium, CitiField, NRG Stadium, National Center of Performing Arts, CosmoCaxia Barcelona, etc.
