William Hung Biography

After his energetic audition to be the next “American Idol” accidentally gained the support of numerous enthusiasts, Hung voluntarily left school to continue a music career. He became popular enough to perform on many popular shows, as well as secured a record contract with Koch Entertainment in 2004, releasing three records on the label. His recording career was marked by persistent negative critical reaction, and his popularity became the topic of much controversy as both he and his supporters were accused of encouraging and supporting racial stereotypes against Asians, as he was perceived to lack musical ability and be observed just for embodying these stereotypes. Despite the criticism as well as the significance of his success, he just revealed indications of totally enjoying his celebrity, considering he was living his fantasy.

He brought his own vocation as a musician to an end when in 2011 he taken a job opportunity as a specialized offense analyzer, and made a decision to pursue law enforcement as an alternative to music. Since that time, Hung has reflected positively on his pop music career.
