Charity Event

Chris Sligh was the entertainment at a charity event I went to last night. He has a strong, clear voice and lots of energy on stage. The audience loved him. He told us to get up on our feet during the first song and everyone happily complied:

Before two of his songs he taught us a part that he wanted us to sing. I noticed everybody-from the youngest to the oldest- belting it out as instructed:

Chris was nice enough to pose for a photo with me during his break:



Chris placed tenth on the sixth season of American Idol and dubbed his fans the "Fro Patrol."

From Wikepedia:

Through 2008, Sligh toured relentlessly, with over 115 shows and over 150 other various appearances (radio, tv, web interviews). In Aug-Sept 2008, he headlined the Back to School Tour with Jason Walker opening. The tour hit 32 cities, most of which were partnered directly with Christian radio stations.

In April of 2008, Sligh cowrote a song called "
Here Comes Goodbye" with Clint Lagerberg (also the cowriter of Chris' first single "Empty Me"). This song was released by the country music group Rascal Flatts as a single in January 2009.
