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. Sixty-four million votes were cast and nearly 37 million American viewers and more than 200 million viewers worldwide tuned in to crown Hicks the Season 5 winner of AMERICAN IDOL, making it one of the most-watched TV events of the last decade.
Hicks’ star continued to rise after he stepped off the IDOL stage. Less than three weeks after his IDOL victory, his debut single, “Do I Make You Proud,” entered at #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100, Pop 100, and Single Sales Charts. Coinciding with the single’s release, a cover story named him People magazine’s “Hottest Bachelor of the Year.” His self-titled album (Arista), debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 and was quickly certified RIAA Platinum. In 2007, Hicks penned a brisk-selling autobiography “Heart Full of Soul” (Random House). Hicks is the first male IDOL winner to be featured on a Grammy Award-winning album, Jimmy Fallon’s “Blow Your Pants Off,” which took home the 2013 Grammy for Best Comedy Album.
On Broadway, Hicks starred in the hit musical, GREASE as Teen Angel, and when asked to join the national tour, happily agreed. The 18-month tour connected him with fans across North America. Hicks has also performed with artists like Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg, Gladys Knight, Earth Wind and Fire and The Allman Brothers, appearing in concerts worldwide.
Proceeds from this concert will benefit The Kennett Flash, a non-profit performing arts organization that operates an all-ages, stage-centered, café-style listening room. The Kennett Flash opened in January of 2009, and featured Jeffrey Gaines as its first performance. Since then, The Kennett Flash, has grown to host nearly 225 events a year, covering many genres and disciplines, from Rock to Jazz, Folk to Americana, Film & Lecture, Children’s Performances to Comedy and so much more. The room is unparalleled in scope and presentation in the greater region. Andrew Miller, director of The Flash since 2015, has brought legendary performances to Kennett Square such as 10,000 Maniacs, Alejandro Escovedo, David Bromberg, Bette LaVette, Jerry Douglas and countless others. The Flash hired Su Spina as assistant director in January of this year. Spina has helped create an all new membership program which launches next month.
