Talk about "CAPITALIZING" on your talent! Taylor Hicks will help light up July 4th at the Nation's Capital, as he joins such notable other artists as: Jerry Lee Lewis, Huey Lewis and the News, Broadway performer Brian Stokes Mitchell, and classical singers Hayley Westenra, Harolyn Blackwell and Vittorio Grigolo. The event will be hosted by Jimmy Smitts and will also be televised, giving each artist fabulous exposure.
I particularly like producer Jerry Colbert's comment:
"Between the Lewis boys and Taylor Hicks, they'll get everybody going."
YOU CAN BET YOUR FIREWORKS ON THAT, JERRY!!!!
This will be a 90 minute broadcast that is sure to entertain and thrill both the live audiences and those of us stuck at home in front of our TVs, although we may actually get the better view, due to the large crowds that attend each year.
Taylor Hicks has "taylorized" Broadway and many a concert stage, including the gigantic venue Stadium of Fire. And now, he will also add his unique talent to A Capital Fourth, on the PBS station. Don't miss it!
While you are getting your Taylor Hicks Fix, don't forget to check out TTHC's media board in our Take 2 Section, where we are continuing to remember and celebrate anniversaries of past exciting concert venues. This week we are featuring the NorVa concert, one HOT show, with video to watch and pictures to download.
Taylor Hicks has definitely made his mark. Both he and his fans have a LOT to celebrate this July 4th, but then again...we have been seeing fireworks since the day Taylor first performed. He definitely sets off those sparks!
GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS, WHO HAVE SO BRAVELY KEPT OUR NATION'S FREEDOMS TO ENJOY THIS AND OTHER WONDERFUL EVENTS IN OUR BEAUTIFUL HOME....GOD BLESS THE USA!
