Phillip Phillips has come a long way since being crowned winner of American Idol in 2012. Not only did he win the iconic singing competition, he actually set a world record with an astounding 132 million votes casted. His song “Home” became the best selling coronation song in American Idol history. His debut album “The World from the Side of the Moon” went on to hit Top 10 on the Canadian Soundscan charts!
Before the spotlight found him, Phillips was growing up in southwestern Georgia, working in the family business and attending college. His first taste of a music competition had him winning the local Georgia talent contest ‘Albany Star’. With encouragement from his family and friends, Phillips took a break from working in his family’s business and auditioned for American Idol in summer 2011 – and soon found himself claiming victory as the Season 11 winner after 19 different performances.
Today, at just 22-years-old, Phillips is one busy man. The singer/guitarist/songwriter spent the last couple of months touring with Matchbox Twenty, and is now preparing to kick off a college tour that will take place March – May of this year. International concerts are also beckoning, with a scheduled performance this September in Rio de Janeiro at the ‘Rock in Rio’ music festival.
