Alex Guthrie Visits!

By: Michelle Gonzalez (@MiGoChicago)

Alex’s name may sound familiar with a very notable Chicago figure….

We all know Alex from that American Family Insurance commercial – you know the one – where Jennifer Hudson surprises Alex in joining him on the streets of Atlanta singing Bill Whiter’s “Lovely Day”.

It’s safe to say that commercial moved us to tears with their message that dreams do come true.  Well, for Alex, they sure are. He is in Chicago today performing new music with his band at the Elbo Room, 2871 N Lincoln Ave, at 8pm.  Alex stopped by our studio yesterday and sat down with Fast Lane and even performed some new music.

Tickets at the door are $10. 

In case you want to have a feel-good afternoon cry, here’s the full length AmFam commercial.

Here is the video from his live performance yesterday:
