AAAHHHG! A Taylor Hicks sighting

This just in from our musical informants down at Auburn U:

AUBURN-Arista recording artist and former Auburn University
student Taylor Hicks will be featured during the Auburn University
Marching Band's show during the Mississippi State at Auburn football
game on Sept. 15.

The Auburn University Marching Band, under the direction of Dr.
Corey Spurlin, will perform a medley of songs with Hicks during halftime
of the game set to kick-off at 11:30 a.m.

Taylor’s artistry was reaffirmed and validated, as he won the
fifth season of FOX’s American Idol after a lifetime steeped in the
blues and soul and R&B of his native Southern heroes — Ray Charles, Otis
Redding, James Brown and Sam Cooke. Hicks' win on American Idol in 2006
was viewed by 36.4 million households with some 63.4 million votes cast
for the eventual champion.

Hicks enrolled at Auburn in 1995 where he studied business and
journalism for three years. His life as a working musician was
established while at Auburn.

A native of Birmingham, Hicks is currently touring the country
performing tracks from his latest CD entitled, Taylor Hicks.
