Proud of East Texas: Richard Wells

Richard Wells has never let his blindness slow him down.  For 27 years he was a professional musician, playing over a dozen instruments, although he couldn't see the instruments he played.  Wells quit his life in clubs as a musician when a club owner told him that music made people drink more.

For the past fourteen years, Wells has been a minister, serving at the present as Pastor of the Simpsonville Baptist Church.  The church is small and has no pianist, Wells divides his time at services between the pulpet and the piano.
