Many people have heard of Charlie’s Angels a fictional televisions show about 3 women who fought crime and helped those in need. Their boss was a mysterious guy named Charlie.
Well Taylor’s Angels is far from fictional. Taylor’s Angels are a group of very kind, caring and giving women who are also proud members of The Soul Patrol, the fan base for Taylor Hicks.
Taylor’s Angels do not have a voice coming out of a mysterious box to tell them what to do, instead these angel’s rely on their heart’s to guide them. There are several definitions of what an angel is, however I found three definitions that I feel perfectly sum up Taylor’s Angels and in so doing also describes the kind and giving nature of Taylor Hicks. Here is what the definition of an angel is; A guardian spirit or guiding influence, a kind and lovable person and one who manifests goodness, purity, and selflessness.
So you ask, what do Taylor’s Angels do, they are a group of ladies who Tay-it Forward when the need arises.
A random act of kindness to help a fan obtain membership to the Taylor Hicks HQ fan site turned into the very selfless act of helping others join the fan site and in some cases to see Taylor Hicks, live, on stage and in concert. Taylor’s Angels was formed several months by a group of Soul Patrollers. They have since gifted many memberships and many; many fans have been presented concert tickets to see Taylor Hicks live.
Taylor’s Angel’s mission statement is very simple: To reach out and touch the hearts and souls of Taylor Hicks fans all over the world by exposing them to Taylor’s music and giving nature.
Over the months these wonderful ladies have done much more than I think they even expected to do. The stories brought forth because of Taylor’s Angels are stories that will make you smile, shed a tear and just realize that giving from you heart and knowing you affected someone’s life in a terrific way is truly what is important in life. You can read these stories at Taylors Angels you will see how special these ladies are and how deeply they have touched the lives of others.
Taylor Hicks has inspired his fans to do so many Acts of Kindness. There is just something about the nature of Taylor Hicks that drives his fans to help each other and others in any way possible.
Taylor’s Angels wanted to send children in Big Brothers/ Big Sisters to a Taylor Hicks show, they approached Bruce Torres of Cabana Cove Productions for concert ticket donations. They had no idea what a heart of gold this guy had. He provided Taylor’s Angels with the initial request of 20 tickets for the Big Brothers/ Big Sisters to attend Taylor Hicks’ concert on July 6 at The Maryland Theater in Hagerstown, MD. But he was so inspired that he continued his act of kindness and then donated 40 tickets to the local Girls, Inc.
