Developer Wants Taylor Hicks As National Spokesman!

John Elkington of Performa Entertainment, the developer who is in the process of building a 40 million dollar entertainment complex in Birmingham, AL called "The Forge", is in negotiations with Taylor to be their national spokesman. According to The Birmingham News:

Performa is also talking with Hoover native and "American Idol" winner Taylor Hicks about being a national commercial spokesman for the entertainment district, Elkington said. Hicks has signed a letter-of-intent to open a nightclub in the district. "We haven't reached an agreement yet, but are hoping to soon," Elkington said.

Hicks' yet unnamed 6,000-square-foot club will feature his Southern-style rock as well as live entertainment by local and regional acts. The district will include 136,00 square feet of clubs, restaurants and shops. Ruben Studdard, Season 2 winner of American Idol also signed a letter of intent to open club in the district.

Performa hopes to have it completed by the Spring of 2009.

It seems as if Taylor's crew is working hard at keeping his name out there. My thoughts have always been, slow and steady wins the game!

Great news to hear..Thanks for finding Griz

You're absolutely right trixi -- there seems to be a new release with much more regularity than we got from the label/JRecords/Arista. I'm a happy camper! :)
