AARON KELLY was born in Sarasota, Florida. Adopted at the age of five by his aunt and uncle, he moved to Nashville, Tennessee. Presently, Aaron is enjoying the Pennsylvania mountains with family and friends. Aaron considers central Pennsylvania his home. He has sung professionally since the age of nine, performing at festivals and fairs and opening for such acts as Charlie Daniels, Loretta Lynn, Emerson Drive, Bill Anderson, Little Big Town, Montgomery Gentry, Billy Currington, Randy Houser, and the Marshall Tucker Band, just to name a few. At age eleven, Aaron was a finalist on America’s Most Talented Kid. He was a participant in The American Idol Experience at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, FL. At the end of the day, Aaron was the highest vote recipient in the finale show, which entitled him to receive the dream ticket. This got him to the front of the line for the real American Idol auditions in Orlando in June 2009. Aaron is the third contestant from Pennsylvania, and, at the time he performed, was the youngest contestant to make it through to the Top Twelve on American Idol. Aaron Kelly finished fifth place in the competition. On the season finale of American Idol on May 26, 2010, Aaron sang “How Deep is Your Love” joined by the Bee Gees. Later that year, Aaron released “I Can’t Wait for Christmas.” After Idol, Aaron appeared on Access Hollywood, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Late Show with David Letterman, The Wendy Williams Show, and Good Morning America, as well as various media outlets. Aaron Kelly’s original song, “Coincidence,” can be requested at country radio and is available to buy at the iTunes store. Aaron Kelly on occasion collaborates with Shane Wittman’s band Flipside from Williamsport, PA. Aaron’s country pop combined with Flipside’s classic rock blossoms into a well-balanced combination. Complementing each other with classy music and intricate harmony vocals, they often practice acappella style, fine tuning their blended, well-integrated harmony and vocals, and learning each other’s songs and styles including originals.
Aaron offers several options for his fans custom to the venue’s needs. Aaron with accoustic guitar or trio, which includes saxophone and percussion, and/or a full band. Aaron’s music crosses all eras and spectrums of music and attracts a wide range of fans of all ages. A recent 2017 West Coast Florida Tour resulted in invitations back at every stop.
New York Finger Lakes is next on the horizon for 2017.
