William James Hung is a Hong Kong-born American former singer who gained fame in early 2004 as a result of his off-key audition performance of Ricky Martin's hit song "She Bangs" on the third season of the television series American Idol.

Soon after American Idol ended, William landed a number of gigs as a singer and appeared on some of the top American Shows such as Jimmy Kimmel Live!, On Air with Ryan Seacrest, Entertainment Tonight, David Letterman, The Howard Stern Radio Show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show. 

But he has a story left to tell - while many people think he simply put on an act to embarrass himself, the truth was far from it. He wanted to sing and get on stage. This is what our conversation is about.  Fast forward 14 years, William has released two albums but is looking to try other things in life, become a coach and help others overcome adversity. He's still figuring things out - and talking to him was fascinating.
