David Cook won the seventh season of American Idol, a contest in which he was perceived to be the underdog against runner-up David Archuleta.
Born in Houston Texas in 1982, he was raised in Blue Springs, Missouri where he was active in theater in high school and started his first band. He attended the University of Central Missouri where he began as a theater major, but ended up graduating with a degree in graphic design. After college he took up residence in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
David Cook went to the seventh season American Idol auditions as support for his younger brother, who encouraged David to try out as well. Unlike David, his brother did not advance to Hollywood. His musical styling was most often compared to Chris Daughtry, a contest from a previous season. He went on to win the competition, receiving twelve million votes in the final contest – 56% of the votes cast. His first post-Idol album has a release date of November 18, 2008.
