Meeting American Idol‘s William Hung in person earlier this year, I was struck by his positronic energy. In our interview, I learned more about his gentle spirit, which is backed up by focus and determination. These traits are what turned a longshot audition into a viral sensation and a yearslong adventure!

The title of this episode comes from William’s vocalized plan to do a podcast honoring unsung heroes. I mentioned that it might be fun to call the show “Unsung with William Hung.” Anyway, this is just one part of his mission to help others make their dreams come true.

Join us for another fun and enlightening episode of TTF, as a guy who, as William himself puts it, “was just another college kid with dreams of going to Hollywood” ACTUALLY GOT THERE.
