Hicks Heart and Soul coverTaylor Hicks is on a different sort of tour this week as he hits the network show circuit promoting his new book, Heart Full of Soul: An Inspirational Memoir About Finding Your Voice and Finding Your Way.

This morning the season 5 winnner of American Idol is appearing on Good Morning America during the 8 – 9 a.m. hour. He will appear on ABC’s The View tomorrow, July 18.

The 272 page book was released on July 10.

Hicks will be signing copies of the book today at the midtown Manhattan location of Barnes & Noble before returning to the Magic City later this week to do book signings at Brookwood Village on Thursday evening and the Boutwell Auditorium on Friday evening. Those interested in knowing where Taylor heads next should go over to IdolStalker.com where appearances for the month of July are listed.

NOTE: Friday will be crazy downtown, with Art on the Rocks and the Harry Potter book release party at McWane Science Center

Taylor Hicks is a down-to-earth, charming guy who never gave up on his dream. He's an inspiration on many levels! A great entertainer who owns the stage when he's performing, Taylor always gives 150%. "Heart Full of Soul" is his story and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it!

Listened to Taylor reading Heart Full of Soul over the weekend. Waiting on my copy of the book to arrive. Was great listening to Taylor tell his story; such a sad childhood! It happens too often these days. I'm so glad he found music to be his rock to hold on to. Born to perform!

Bought the book July 10 at 8pm,stayed up all night reading it .It really lets us know Taylor's journey hasn't been an easy one, but Thank Goodness he didn't ever give up because now he is really a SoulSinger much like his IDOL Ray Charles. I'll be in Bham this week to help celabrate. BJinFLA

I thoroughly enjoyed both the audio and hardbound versions of Heart Full of Soul! Taylor courageously puts out there in words just as he does on stage. Bravo to him!

I haven't read a biography by ANYONE in a long time but I read Taylor Hicks' book "A Heart Full of Soul" in record time -- 5 hours. Like me, you'll probably laugh, feel sad, and in the end be hopeful for Taylor and his career choices. The book touched many cords for me -- living with the grandparents; divorced parents (one of whom had a drinking problem); moving around a lot; and feeling lonely as a child. I can also relate to Taylor's feeling of discouragement. I'm delighted that Taylor persevered and is able to live his dream. The book does have many inspirational as well as naughty episodes to it. A very enjoyable product for a new artist and writer.
