American Idol winner, Phillip Phillips, developed a musical background with the help of his family. Native of Albany, Georgia, Phillips and his brother-in-laws formed a band in 2009 and performed in various local venues. From there, Phillips’ love of music grew and he began to pursue that career path even further. In 2010, Phillip Phillips competed in and won a local singing competition, Albany Star. From there, he went on to audition for season eleven of American Idol, performing Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition”. Phillips made it through multiple rounds despite a kidney condition that forced him to undergo multiple surgeries whilst competing. Regardless, Phillips became the 2012 American Idol winner, and his song “Home” sold millions of copies in the U.S. Following the competition, Phillips joined the American Idol LIVE Tour and released his debut album, The World from the Side of the Moon, later in November that same year. The album landed at No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200. His second album, Behind the Light, was released in May 2014 with its supporting single, “Raging Fire”.
