P is for Phillip Phillips

I was trying to figure out what my post for the letter P would be. I had something else picked out, but changed my mind. So, I'm racking my brain when the hubby turns on the TV to watch American Idol.
I'm a Phillip Phillips fan (who's a contestant on the show) and I usually DVR it so I can watch it another time. Anyway, when my hubby started to watch Idol, I thought... "Great. Another distraction for my already ADD'd out mind."

But then, Phillip started to sing, and my P post was born.

I realize some of you may not watch the show or could care less about it, but I thought it'd be sort of fun to share a little about Phillip and his singing/guitar playing talent.

Phllip Phillips is a 21 year old Pawn Shop worker from Leesburg, Georgia. His audition for the reality show American Idol is what caught my attention a few months back. He sang Thriller by Michael Jackson. It's a really cool rendition, IMO. Seriously, take a listen.

His weekly songs have kept me rooting for him. He's performed The Black Crowes Hard to Handle to Phil Collins' In the Air Tonight to Usher's You Got it Bad to Maroon 5's song (Yes! Maroon 5!!!) Give a Little More.
I love how he can take a song and make it his own, turning it into something even more amazing.

Phillip's favorite quote: "When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace." - Jimi hendrix

  1. yeah we enjoy him also--he reminds us of a cross between dave matthews, john mayer, and david gray

    1. He can sing! and he's so casual about it. Love that. :)

  2. He reminds me of Dave Matthews. I've loved him since his audition!

  3. That is a really cool rendition of Thriller. I gave up cable a while nearly a year ago, in hopes that it would make me focus more on like blogging and writing, unfortunately it's just made me a little out of touch.

    1. Idk what I'd do without cable!... oh yeah, probably get more writing done!!! Which I need to do.

  4. Hi, Jackie!

    I try to catch, American Idol when I can. It's a great show when you just desire to be entertained!

    I'll have to watch the next show and catch, Phillip!

    He sounds ok- ill have to watch next time to hear some of his other songs; get a real good sense of his talent and voice!

    Thats for the catch up!

    1. Yes, watch it and let me know what you think. :D
