Taylor with Kids at Grammy U
Taylor Hicks is a consummate artist. His music is genuine, perfect, and soulful. And speaking of soul....Taylor's Heart and Soul are definitely in THE RIGHT PLACE, especially when it comes to working for, and talking, with kids. He has helped out many major charity events and also taken time to talk with kids at various events about careers and music and life, including Grammy U and Me TV.
According to Al.Com's article about the Magic Moments Charity, Taylor Hicks was the FIRST to sign up to help his home state of Alabama make kids wishes come true. He is in good company, with Reuben Studdard, Joe Namath, Al Del Greco, and Olympian Vonetta Flowers, who are all helping the Magic Moments Charity help grant chronically ill children's wishes. This coincides with Stars Fall on Alabama this year.

As we look forward to two new tours from Taylor Hicks, "Grease" and his new CD tour, I am lost in memories of the last concert I attended on his solo tour Journey. Millersville, PA...a night of many surprises. It was the best of times...it was the worst of times....lol. But it was all in all, a fantastic evening! Taylor was at his wonderful supremo and so, I have lots of goodies from that show.
If you would like to re-live one of the last legs of Taylor Hicks and his solo CD tour, please join us at the TTHC Media Board Take 2 area, for REMEMBERING MILLERSVILLE. This area is open to all, members and non members to view.
I cannot WAIT to have threads remembering the new CD tour! Go Tay!
