But I digress.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Taylor Hicks has been an exceptionally strong draw during his tenure in Las Vegas.
In fact, his contract with Ballys Las Vegas has been extended through 2013. This is what David Hoenemeyer, president of Bally’s Las Vegas had to say:
“Taylor was enormously successful in his first headlining engagement here at Bally’s this summer,” said Hoenemeyer. “Locals as well as tourists from around the nation flock to see him perform on the Vegas Strip, and we look forward to continued success both here in Las Vegas and at some of our other properties.”
As many of you know, Taylor was the winner of Season 5 of American Idol. It has been a bit of a topsy-turvy ride for Taylor since the show ended, but his personality, resilience, talent and determination have led him to this extraordinary moment in his career.
These were the very attributes that Taylor exhibited during his American Idol journey and were, ultimately, responsible for his achievement of the winning title.
And now Taylor is the first Idol alumnus to secure a long-term association with Las Vegas and I am sure that this will open up many enormous performing opportunities for him in the future.
Nice to see that good things happen to good people. He is a wonderful person, passionate about his music and respectful of the fans – The Soul Patrol – who have catapulted him to this level of success.
Congratulations Taylor! Let’s show some Taylor love in the comments section, y’all!
