Chris Sligh

A friend of mine runs a non-profit organization for at-risk kids. It's basically a place for them to go after school so that they aren't out getting into trouble. She does an incredible job.

Every year she hosts a fund-raiser with a silent and live auction, followed by a show. I don't know how she managed this, but this year the entertainment is Chris Sligh. I admit that I don't know anything about him except that he was an American Idol contestant. Did he make it to the top 10? (And how do you pronounce his name?)

It all goes down tonight. I'm looking forward to it. I seem to remember something about Chris naming his fans the "Fro Patrol." Do you think he'd like to hear some Taylor stories? No? Everyone else I know has been subjected to them, why not him? ha!

I'll let you know how it goes.

Caryl, I liked Chris, I think he was number 10 but was dropped from the tour because of his involvement with Vote for the Worst, could be wrong but thats what I think happened. He has a very pleasing voice to listen to. Just seems like a nice young man. He would give Simon a hard time every week, he had a nice sense of humor. Enjoy your night.

I loved Chris! I don't remember the fro though... unless it's a different guy I'm thinking of. (I can't see the photo or video that you have, my work screened it out.)
