When David goes back to American Idol

As it regularly happens successful winners are invited back for a performance in the (semi- or) finals of any talent show. The American Idol is no exception. Although some could argue that David Cook is not the epitome of a winning career, the fact is he’s been working as a musician ever since he left the show. What more can you want, right?

He also held a quick chat with his fans on twitter (@thedavidcook) so I’ll use some of his answers to tell you a little more about David.

About the hardest song:

It didn’t stop him to actually play his latest single a little later on the show.

About his inspirations:

And about his approach he said:

A charity that’s close to his heart:

Since David’s brother passed away in brain tumor, the singer has been a strong supporter and fundraiser for Race For Hope, an organisation raising money for cancer research.

About his other passions:

Now I understand why he designed a “royal-themed” tee for Race For Hope!

About his family life:

Dublin, as in his dog. A Scottish terrier. Don’t ask. (There’s a joke somewhere here I’m sure!)

What’s next?

About Miss Andi

Learning to be unapologetically me but healthier. Shamelessly personifying my dog, Mia, who is my soulmate, though doesn't let me read as much as I used to. One day I'll finish a novel that will not save the world - but might make it smile.

      You’re welcome, I’m glad to see the likes of him, Kelly Clarkson or from this side if the pond, Olly Murs or Ella Henderson succeed.

    Fantastic theme so far! I’ve just caught up. I love listening to Irish bands! (I followed an Irish band around for a few weeks on the east coast many years ago.)

    Can’t wait to read more!

    HA! So – during that season of Idol – I called it on the first show that David Cook was my GUY! I am so happy to see this post. Lol. I’m a total fan girl of his. And while he’s not a superstar, I’ve got a bunch of his music (love Leave A LIght On) and he’s a few of them turned into videos etc. – so he’s out there being heard – that’s still awesome for him.
