Phillip Philips made his TV series debut last Thursday on Pure Genius, the CBS medical drama from producer Jason Katims (Parenthood, Friday Night Lights). Phillip played himself in a short but key scene of the episode’s main storyline, which involved Madeline, a bright young musician battling leukemia. The scene was moving and very effective, thanks in great part to the performance of Jade Pettyjohn, the talented actress who played Madeline. I don’t want to spoil it if you haven’t watched it, but Phillip was also great, doing what he does best, which is bringing his gift of music to those who most need it.
If you missed the episode, you can watch it in full here and here (I highly recommend it to follow the entire arc of the storyline). Or to re-watch Phillip’s scene, take a look at the video below, courtesy of mjsbigblog.
