American Idol Star to Play in Manchester

Spotlight Manchester, Ohio! American Idol 2 star, Josh Gracin, will performing April 1, at the Manchester High School gymnasium, just a few short miles, up river. The venue seats about 2,000 people and there's plenty of room available but you may want to show early. The doors open at 6 pm.

From his web site:

For country music fans, one of the highlights of the Fox network's "American Idol 2" was the success of a young Marine named Josh Gracin, a dyed-in-the-wool country singer whose electrifying performances won him hearts and votes across the country.

His debut CD, Josh Gracin, captures the world-class voice and performing magic that made him such a star on American Idol 2. Songs like his debut single, "I Want To Live." The CD's energy draws directly from the fire Josh displays on stage, a place that has long felt like home to him. "When I'm up on stage," he says, "it's like a whole new world for me. I love performing. I'm a firm believer that it's really great for a singer to have a good voice, but to bring it to another level you have to draw the audience in and make them part of the music, make them feel what you're feeling."
