About William Hung

Chinese singer William James Hung Ching Heong or more popularly known as William Hung of the “American Idol” audition fame has an estimated net worth value of $1.5 Million. The popular Chinese American music artist/performer was born in the city of Sha Tin, Hongkong in 1982. He became an instant celebrity after failing the audition process for the famous American singing talent search in 2004. An online petition of almost 100,000 fans clamored to have him back on the show. This appeal was answered by making a documentary of his audition process and other unsuccessful applicants for the famous talent search TV show. On one of his guest performances at the University of California in Berkeley, he was surprised with a $25,000 check from the Fuse Channel who was impressed with his determination to succeed, positive outlook in life and eagerness to learn new things. He eventually got a record deal from Koch Entertainment for his first album called “Inspiration” where he successfully made cover versions of songs from Ricky Martin, Village People, and Elton John.
