A household name for followers of American Idol, who could forget Mr. Salt and Pepper, Taylor Hicks? With that raspy voice and signature look, Hicks was a leader of the notorious “soul patrol.” The 2006 American Idol winner is a rock and blues powerhouse who lent his pipes to artists including Widespread Panic, James Brown and Robert Randolph.

An Alabama native, Hicks is steeped in the blues and R&B tradition, a natural knack he brings to each performance. He’s also the first and only Idol to land a residency in Vegas, where his soulful crooning and slight-offbeat personality is a hit with audiences.

More than 63 million votes were cast and nearly 37 million viewers tuned-in to crown Hicks the Season 5 winner of American Idol, making it one of the most-watched TV events of the decade.

His single, Do I Make You Proud, was #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100, Pop 100, and Single Sales Charts.

Named People magazine’s “Hottest Bachelor of the Year.”

His self-titled album debuted at #2 on Billboard – quickly went Platinum.
