Taylor Hicks began to sing at an early age and learned how to play the harmonica and guitar by himself. After studying at Auburn University in Alabama and starting a band, Hicks moved to Nashville to further his musical ambitions. In 2005, he decided to audition for American Idol. During his performances, Taylor won a large fan following. This group eventually called themselves the “Soul Patrol”, and was large enough to vote him as winner of the fifth season’s competition in 2006. Hicks released an album, Taylor Hicks, that same year. Besides recording albums and touring the country, he headlined a show in Las Vegas in 2012–14. Taylor also co-owned a barbecue restaurant in Birmingham, Alabama, and from 2016 to 2018 he hosted a reality food and travel television show called State Plate, which showcased the main foods from each state. In 2017 he released the song Six Strings and Diamond Rings. His autobiography, Heart Full of Soul, was published in 2007.

Justin Willman wants to melt your brain while making you laugh. He’s best known as the star and creator of the hit Netflix series Magic For Humans. But you may recognize him from one of his many television appearances (The Tonight Show, The Today Show, Ellen, Conan...). Or maybe he’s the child magician you hired in suburban St. Louis in the 90s. If you don’t know Justin, he’s a magician and comedian who’s mastered the art of turning cynics into believers (or at least getting them to laugh). His live show is simultaneously mind-blowing and hilarious and will likely keep you up at night wondering how the heck any of it was possible. Justin is also a proud father, a loving husband, and has zero experience as a licensed boat mechanic (that’s a different Justin Willman).

Graham Russell & Russell Hitchcock met on May 12, 1975, the first day of rehearsals for Jesus Christ Superstar in Sydney, Australia; they became instant friends with their common love for The Beatles and, of course, singing. Air Supply was born.
Clive Davis signed the band to Arista Records and in 1980, Lost in Love became the fastest selling single in the world, leaping to the top of all of the charts. Now Air Supply was on their way. The second single was All Out of Love, and that went up the charts even quicker.
Seven top-five singles later, Air Supply at that time had equaled The Beatles' run of consecutive top five singles. The albums Lost in Love, The One That You Love, Now & Forever, and The Greatest Hits sold in excess of 20 million copies.
