Sam Harris


Ever since he was the first winner on the pre-American Idol Star Search, Harri has made it clear that he’s not your father’s Oldsmobile of a singer. There are some who might say he remains the best pop singer around, and who’s to argue the contention, even though he’s now a settled married man and proud father? He also makes a great virtue of eclecticism. Another charm on his bracelet is the ability to elicit resounding yuks as a teller of funny stories. Some of them he’s been present at, and some of them he’s written.
