William Hung Still Getting the Gigs
The American Idol disaster who became a household name after his national TV rejection is bringing his "talent" to Wayne County, Indiana.
His rendition of the Ricky Martin song "She Bangs" sent Hung went out with... well, a bang.
He'll hit Indiana with a bang at 7 p.m., November 29, in a concert at Fountain City Wesleyan Church. Despite an off-key singing voice, the lovable Asian-American gained more popularity than most Idols who went further in the competition.
Nearly three years after his abominable audition, Hung books concerts at shopping malls, charity events, halftime shows and in November, a church near you.
"This is one of the biggest things to ever happen in Richmond," event organizer Adam Cappa said. "We're trying to do something that will benefit both the teens and the community."
The idea to book Hung came from the FCWC Youth Group planning events to help get more people involved in the organization. When planning events for the youth group, the idea of a concert was put on the table.
Youth Pastor Greg Boyce mentioned having Christian singer John Ruben come to the church but Cappa had other ideas. The suggestion of Hung came up and Cappa e-mailed him. He received a response that night.
The church is calling the event "Hung' In Out." Wow.
Hung also will sign autographs and pose for pictures.
Road trip, anyone?
