UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL WITH… SCOTT MacINTYRE

Upstairs at Vitellos

4349 Tujunga Avenue, Studio City, CA 91604

12:00pm

Scott MacIntyre has come a long way. From his early days as a classical concert pianist to capturing the hearts of millions of American Idol viewers with his engaging presence and vocal prowess, he has never let challenges keep him from achieving his dreams. Having performed with such noteable acts as The Band Perry, Alice Cooper, and the Jonas Brothers, he has traveled the globe inspiring audiences with his music and story.

MacIntyre’s latest project, Lighthouse, boasts vocal aptitude and incredibly inspiring songwriting that could make even the most wary of listeners hopeful. Produced by MacIntyre, Matt Bronleewe (Jars of Clay, Natalie Imbruglia), and Kyle Lee (Michael W. Smith, TobyMac), Lighthouse offers eleven strong tunes which speak of hope, love, and faith. Included are the first single “Fifty Second Chances” and two tracks featuring fellow Idol alumni Danny Gokey and Skylar Laine.

“I’m really excited about this new album,” says MacIntyre. “I’ve been so blessed to work with incredible co-writers and producers, and I think we’ve been able to capture the true spirit of perseverance in these songs.”

Blind from birth, MacIntyre’s journey has been anything but easy. At nineteen years old, he was diagnosed with stage-four kidney failure. After becoming extremely ill, he began emergency dialysis.

“The hardest thing for me was not having enough strength to play the piano and sing anymore,” says MacIntyre. “It felt like my dreams were dying, but still I held on to hope.”

After a year on dialysis, his college piano teacher’s wife donated her kidney to MacIntyre and saved his life. It was less than a year later that he auditioned for American Idol. Following Idol, he married his wife Christina, a long-time friend from Arizona.

“Fifty Second Chances,” the first single from Lighthouse, embodies the core of MacIntyre’s story. “It’s very sobering to know that I wouldn’t be here today without that life-saving gift,” he says. “My kidney donor literally gave me a second chance at life – the chance to go on American Idol, to marry Christina, and to continue to share my story with others.”

Other standouts on the album include the upbeat tune, “Hallelujah Song,” that features the soulful vocals of fellow Idol alumni, Danny Gokey. Another Idol finalist, Skylar Laine is featured on the heart-felt wedding ballad, “With This Ring,” a touching slow-dance song about love gained. The project closes with MacIntyre’s “I Am Hope,” which has become nothing short of an anthem for the organ donation community over the past few years. MacIntyre’s work with the transplant community has become bountiful; working with Donate Life America, Genentech, National Kidney Foundation, and Astellas to increase awareness about organ donation across the nation.

As an author and in-demand keynote speaker, MacIntyre has shared his story with corporations, health care and education institutions, and non-profits across North America and beyond. In his autobiographical book By Faith, Not By Sight he writes about how he learned to face his fears, even in the midst of incredible adversity. The book was recently translated and re-published in Indonesian.

The consummate prodigy, MacIntyre’s musical talent is rivaled by his equally impressive academic resume. At fourteen, he was admitted into Arizona State University’s Barrett Honors College and Herberger College of Fine Arts. In 2005, he received the coveted Marshall and UK Fulbright scholarships and was ranked by USA Today as one of the top twenty undergraduate seniors in the nation. He then graduated ASU Summa Cum Laude at nineteen, going on to receive a masters degree overseas in England at Royal Holloway, University of London and the Royal College of Music. He was accepted to both Oxford and Cambridge Universities for further graduate study in the UK.
