A runner-up on American Idol and successful music artist, David Archuleta was named one of the "breakout stars of 2008" by "Forbes" magazine and landed the number two spot on the Billboard charts.
In "Chords of Strength" David shares his unexpected and inspiring journey, including how he overcame vocal cord paralysis to achieve his dream of being a singer. He reveals insecurities he felt about his voice-before he realized that he loved the way singing made him feel more than he disliked the way he sounded. In this personal memoir, David opens up about the strength he draws from his unshakable faith and unyielding family. He pays tribute to those who continue to inspire him and through their example help him believe in himself, his talent, and his abilities.
Intimate and uplifting, "Chords of Strength" allows a unique glimpse of the man behind the music and offers hope to anyone with a passion and a dream.
