 Scott MacIntyre Biography

Since captivating the nation as a finalist on American Idol, Scott MacIntyre has continued to move audiences to laughter, tears and standing ovations all over the world.

As an acclaimed singer-songwriter, he has toured in arenas across North America, headlined concerts in Japan, Austria, England, the US and Canada. He has performed with many notable acts including Alice Cooper, Jason Mraz and Queen to name a few. As an in-demand inspirational keynote speaker, Scott has shared his unique and dynamic life story with many different audiences, including corporations, health care and education institutions, non-profits and churches across North America and beyond. In 2012, he authored his first autobiographical book, By Faith, Not By Sight, which chronicled the challenges of growing up blind, learning to play the piano, and dealing with an unexpected illness that almost took his life.

As the first blind finalist on American Idol, MacIntyre was called “an inspiration to the entire world through your commitment, through your talent” by former judge Paula Abdul. Visually impaired since birth, he started playing piano by ear at age 3, began classical lessons at 6, and subsequently learned to play organ, guitar, bass and drums. In 2013, he released his first holiday album Christmas in Paris, and Lighthouse in 2014.

In 2005, he received the coveted Marshall and UK Fulbright scholarships and was ranked by USA Today as one of the top 20 undergraduate seniors in the nation. He then graduated ASU Summa Cum Laude at 19, going on to receive a masters degree overseas in England at Royal Holloway, University of London and the Royal College of Music. During his time overseas, MacIntyre was invited back to the US to be received in the White House by First Lady, Laura Bush as one of three national RFB&D scholarship winners.

MacIntyre was first diagnosed with kidney failure when he was 19. He began emergency dialysis in November 2006. Ten months later, the wife of his former piano instructor at Arizona State University was discovered to be a match and donated a kidney. In 2014, it was announced that he needed a second transplant. The announcement came on the eve of the release of Lighthouse, a project funded by a successful Kickstarter campaign. The album closes with "I Am Hope," which has become an anthem for organ donation and was featured at events for the National Kidney Foundation Walks in New York City, Los Angeles, Boston and Miami.

MacIntyre’s contagious spirit of optimism and heartfelt stories take his audience on an emotional journey of love and yearning, hardship and hope, from someone who deeply understands the challenge of overcoming enormous adversity. Having always forged ahead when the world said to give up, Scott MacIntyre continues to be an inspiration to all who hear his music and story.
