Taylor Hicks: Soul Patrol Covention

Taylor Hicks fans have come together to try and get a Soul Patrol convention going. Proceeds from the convention will go to Kid One Transport. Here is the release please contact those given in the release to find out more.

We are Harmony for the Soul and would like to introduce ourselves to the legions of Taylor Hicks fans across the planet. We are dedicated to organizing a National Soul Patrol Convention. We were founded with the objective of being a fund raiser for Kid One Transport, a non-profit organization which provides free medical transportation to children and expectant mothers in Alabama, allowing them to receive the essential health care and checkups they need and deserve.. This is a charity Taylor Hicks is very involved in and holds near to his heart. All profits from the convention will go to Kid One Transport.

Plans are currently underway for the convention in Birmingham, Alabama, to be held tentatively on October 12-14, 2007. We are planning multiple activities, a musical extravaganza, and a chance for friends old and new to gather and share the common bond of love for an artist and great soul music. Many of us have wanted a place to gather and meet our fellow soul patrollers and see friends we've come to know along the way who share our love of the music and the artists who create it. Provide the soul and they will come. Venues in the city are being reviewed, however, and we need an idea of attendance and therefore need your help.

We are sending this to inquire how many of you would be committed to attending..depending on the responses we receive, we will then get an idea how and if we shall proceed.

If you are interested in attending this event, please send an email to our secretary at We will keep your name and address on record and will continue to keep you updated with developing news.

Please remember we are constantly working behind the scenes to make this a great event for everyone and all information will be provided as it becomes finalized. Anyone interested in helping to organize and assist in future planning of this event, please send an email to our president at for details on joining our group.
