It sounds like the solenoid went bad on the starter. What you need to do is have a helper turn the key to the start position and check the smaller wire on the starter for power. There should be 12 volts in the start position.
If there is power, remove the starter and have it bench tested at a local parts store.
Let me know what you find.
