Travis Tucker - Christmas Blessings from Washington, DC

This morning, I discovered a local talent, Travis Tucker on the news singing Donny Hathaway's "This Christmas." I admit it. I didn't know who he was, but he sang beautifully. He was full of personality and spirit. It didn't hurt that he was indeed beautiful. I looked him up and came across some beautiful photos and music on his Myspace page. He was apparently in the fourth season of American Idol. I don't watch Idol. I tried it once. But, once I realized that the career fates of Idol contestants weren't based on actual talent, but the popularity and the ability of a clueless teenage girls to hit re-dial several times on thier phone, I completely lost interest. Travis Tucker was on season 4 ---- and a DC Metropolitan resident!!! Manasas, Virginia. (Manasas isn't that close, but still --- Manasas folks are still considered DC folks!!!) He put out an album on iTunes called "Live" and ---- let's face it ... he's fine. Shout out to Travis. Merry Christmas. His song and blessing were a nice thing to wake up to this morning after I decided not to go to work. (Yes, I'm one of those last minute people.)

If his voice at all matches his beautiful face, he's definitely working with something! Thanks for pointing him out and Merry Christmas!
