Taylor Hicks is one of the most beloved and popular AMERICAN IDOL winners of all time. From the start, Hicks’ material on the mega-hit show set him apart, with a unique take on Southern soul, R & B, country and blues. Since his season 5 IDOL victory, Hicks’ star has continued to rise. His singles have made it to the top of the Billboard’s Hot 100, Pop 100, and Single Sales Charts, and in 2008, he joined the cast of Broadway’s revival of “Grease” as Teen Angel. Hicks has performed alongside Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg, Gladys Knight, Earth Wind & Fire, and The Allman Brothers, and continues to appear in concerts worldwide.
