American Idol finalist... After spending 3 months on the US Canada American Idol Second Season Tour, Charlie went right to work on his recording project. The album project, spearheaded by CitiBoyz Music, Ltd., has reunited Charlie with the American public giving them a new sound from an old face. After leaving the American Idol tour he balanced his schedule amongst appearing in hundreds of TV shows, concerts, motivational speaking engagements, commercials, fashion modeling shows, his family and social life and recording his album. Charlie along with his peers enjoyed a 40 city national tour with sold out shows in 90% of the venues performed. After the tour he went into the studio to work on his album. His long awaited project has a musical flair that defines Charlie. He wrote most of the songs on the project and collaborated in the music production ideas. His tens of thousands of fans anxiously await his recording project. Charlie is the youngest of six children, and was born and raised in Oberlin, Ohio. He's become a youth icon in his state and has a huge fan base in Ohio and throughout the rest of the country. He responds to hundreds of the thousands of emails received each month. His album is finished and his management company is currently entertaining a few offers, including a host of public appearances. Charlie is currently touring his home state, Ohio, with boy group AddedFX. In mid-September 2005 Charlie will commence his promotional tour. While a major recording deal is being negotiated, Charlie's EP (6 song recording) will be available July 21st, 2005.
