Kirt Webster, President of Webster Public Relations, has announced the addition of Taylor Hicks to its roster for publicity representation. “Taylor has shown his talent expands beyond the music realm to a variety of facets in the entertainment industry,” said Webster. “I’m excited for all the possibilities to come with this partnership.”
Hicks is expanding his reach beyond the music realm as he returns this August to host State Plate, an INSP original series that takes Hicks across the U.S. in search of some of the states’ most symbolic and popular foods.
Less than three weeks after his Season 5 winner of American Idol victory, his debut single, “Do I Make You Proud,” entered at #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100, Pop 100, and Single Sales Charts. Coinciding with the single’s release, a cover story named him People magazine’s “Hottest Bachelor of the Year.” His self-titled album Arista, debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 and was certified RIAA Platinum. In 2007, Hicks penned a brisk-selling autobiography Heart Full of Soul (Random House). Hicks is the first male IDOL winner to be featured on a Grammy Award-winning album, Jimmy Fallon’s “Blow Your Pants Off,” which took home the 2013 Grammy for Best Comedy Album.
Additionally, Hicks is expanding beyond the music realm as he returns this August to host State Plate, an INSP original series that takes Hicks across the U.S. in search of some of the states’ most symbolic and popular foods. Hicks also starred in the hit musical Grease on Broadway, which extended to an 18-month national tour. In 2012, he began a residency at Bally’s Las Vegas, then at Paris Las Vegas.
