"For the longest time, the odds against me were discouraging. But there was always a voice inside telling me it was going to get better. Thinking back, my first step toward singing for a living was stealing an Otis Redding album when I was nine. What I heard on that platter was life-changing.
"In Heart Full of Soul, I share some life stories that will hopefully inspire you, and give you a sense of my philosophy and how it drove me. A lot of great fans lined up behind me the night of the Idol finale. This audiobook is about the strange path that led me to that pop-culture moment, and the sharp directional changes that occurred after that phenomenal night, including touring America, producing an album, and experiencing that two-sided gig known as American celebrity."

In San Francisco, I saw Taylor Hicks sing a cameo role in the Broadway Show GREASE with the original Broadway cast - they got it right. Taylor released on 3/10/2009 his new CD The Distance, and it played on my car on the ride home. At the theatre, friends discussed Taylor's book, Heart Full of Soul - that was the first I heard Taylor Hicks was an author as well as a musician. During the reality show, I was impressed with Taylor's authenticity - and his story is compelling and real - believing life was going to get better - believing in himself - devoted to his passion - music. I read it in one sitting - and left me wanting a second volume. Here's to you, Taylor, to your commitment to your dream, and to your continued success. Going the distance...with one inspired Soul Patrol fan...
