In the true spirit of Chicken Soup, Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen, along with Debra Halperin Poneman, the founder and president of Yes to Success, Inc. bring you a heart-warming collection of stories, which will inspire everyone to reach for their dreams.
Chicken Soup for the American Idol Soul will make you laugh and make you cry; it will inspire you with stories from fans, former Idols, and behind the scenes staff members of American Idol. You'll read stories of how American Idol touched the lives of those who work/worked on the show, the contestants who auditioned, and the fans who have been drawn in to watch a cultural phenomenon week after week.
Of special mention is Clay Aiken's You Just Never Know , which tells the story of how one fan showed Clay how you never know when something you say or do will could change a person's life forever. One Simple Word by American Idol fan Amy Johnson eloquently tells how Amy's seriously ill daughter, Mackenzie shares a special friendship with Idol Ace Young. And in Finally Home, Idol Jordin Sparks shares the story of when she realized where her gift of song truly came from. American Idol judge, Paula Abdul has contributed a touching foreword for this wonderful collection.
Whether you are a huge fan of American Idol or pride yourself on having never seen an episode, Chicken Soup for the American Idol Soul is a book every fan of Chicken Soup will want to add to their collection. It will also make a perfect gift for anyone who has a dream.
A portion of the profits from Chicken Soup for the American Idol Soul will be donated to Idol Gives Back, The Bubel/Aiken Foundation, and Highrollers with a Heart.
