He may have already won the title of American Idol, but David Cook has returned to the show that made him a household name.
The rocker, who beat out pop crooner David Archuleta on last seasonâ€™s competition, performed his new single â€œCome Back to Meâ€ for a thrilled audience, which will be featured on an upcoming episode of the Fox reality hit.
David also received a surprise treat of his own â€” a platinum album of his self-titled debut CD.
â€œBefore Idol, it took me a year to sell 1,000 records, and now I am platinum in three months. Amazing!â€ a grateful David announced, clearly stunned that he managed to sell 1 million copies in such a short time. Prior to his TV breakthrough, the singer released a slow-selling independent album titled Analog Heart, which now commands up to $500 on eBay. It looks like thereâ€™s no stopping this shooting star!
