‘American Idol’ Star A Business Speaker

Best known for his off-key rendition of Ricky Martin’s “She Bangs” on ABC’s television show “American Idol,” William Hung has taken an embarrassing singing audition and turned it into a platform for his self-help business book, “Champion by Choice.” “I’ve been sharing many stories related to my ‘American Idol’ journey with my speaking in the last several years, but I still feel I can’t give people the complete picture about what happened before, during and after my ‘American Idol’ audition,” said Hung in an email to the Business Journal. “Even though I am confident what I share will help the readers, people need to know I’ve been there and done it myself. It builds credibility.” Hung grew up a Valley kid, with his family moving to Northridge right after the earthquake in 1994. The book, which launched earlier this month, is part memoir, part self-help guide for people looking to move on from embarrassing personal experiences. Public ridicule is hard to stomach on its own, but amplified to the tune of 5 million YouTube views after its original airing roughly 15 years ago, it can seem impossible to move on. Hung not only moved on, but he used the experience to cultivate an upbeat look on life that he looks to share with his readership. The book expands on his public speaking circuits which run through the Valley; his speeches give tips on building a successful business through memorable self-marketing and finding the “right message for the right market,” according to his website. “Champion by Choice” retails for $12.99.
