Phillip Phillips Biography

Born Name: Phillip LaDon Phillips Jr.
Birthdate: September 20, 1990
Birth Place : Leesburg Georgia
It was back on September 20th 1990 when the world welcomed new born Phillip LaDon Phillips Jr. in Leesburg GA. Little did the family know that in about 21 years, their little baby boy would be a hugely popular singer, guitarist, songwriter and musician (and TV star). As a child, Phillip was a regular kid, had some odd jobs and also worked in the pawn shop that his dad owned. His family stayed in Leesburg as Phillip grew up; he went to the local Lee County high school and graduated like everyone else. Not knowing for sure what he wanted to do with himself, he wound up at Albany Technical College majoring in IST (Industrial Systems Technology).
It was around this time when American Idol season 11 was coming around and Phillips figured he'd give it a shot. Especially because of his obvious talents and from what his friends and family have told him for years. They always told him that no matter what he chose in life, he would end up as a musician, and a great one at that. Tryouts came to Savannah Georgia and the decision was made for him to go to the auditions and see what happens. ... full Phillip Phillips biography
