Interview with 'American Idol' winner David Cook
After being crowned American Idol on the seventh season of the hit reality singing competition "American Idol" in 2008, David Cook has gone on to release two albums (David Cook and This Loud Morning), sold 1.5 million copies of his debut album, #1 hits on the Billboard charts and had some of his singles certified Gold and Platinum to date. The 29 year old singer-songwriter has not only accomplished a great deal in his career, but he has done a lot for charity as well. His brother, Adam Cook, passed away in 2009 after a decade-long battle with brain cancer. As such, David has decided to do the best he can to prevent more people from going through what his brother had to go through, and hence he has done a lot of charity work for cancer research organizations such as the Accelerated Brain Cancer Cure. This year will be his 5th year of involvement in the ABCC. He has raised over 3 million dollars for brain tumor research and funding. He also performed for soldiers in both Kuwait and Iraq
