On July 30, 2007 Welk-Sullivan Productions brought American Idol winner Taylor Hicks to the Welk Theatre in Branson, MO.  Hicks gave the packed house a fantastic show, filled with the energy and his passion for the music.
Showing off his trademark moves he performed a wide variety covering classic favorites as well as orginal songs. He performed soulful renditions of timeless hits inluding Chuck Berry's Heart and Soul, Lynard Skynard's Call Me The Breeze, The Beatles Don't Let Me Down, and Rod Stewart's Young Turks.
 During his finale he sat alone on the stage with his acoustic guitar and treated the audience to an original song called  "The Fall."  It was a great night that was filled with terrific music and fun.

 Afterwards during his meet and greet he took the time to talk with fans and pose for pictures.  Here he poses for a pictures with super fan Mallory Lankford.

Taylor Hicks has a great band with him and he came across as a genuine person who really loves the music - it made for a memorable show.
