In Learning to Sing, Clay Aiken tells the story of how his faith was integral to him learning valuable life lessons during his meteoric rise from life as an aspiring educator in Raleigh, North Carolina to instant stardom on "American Idol."

Clay's advice is 1) Believe in yourself, 2) Believe in God, and 3) Be really stubborn. This personal relationship with God is key to personal success, as Clay has witnessed in real life experiences. When asked to "dirty up" his lyrics to increase sales, he resisted-and has sold more than 3 million albums. He refuses to make videos placing him in inappropriate situations, and considers his relationship with God the most valuable in his life.

Learning to Sing is an account of Clay Aiken's extraordinary faith and will and perseverance, and an inspiring memoir by someone who became-against all odds-one of the biggest pop stars of his time.

Clay Aiken was one of the two finalists in the 2003 American Idol season, and is undoubtedly the biggest start to emerge from that franchise. Aiken's debut album, "Measure of a Man," entered the Billboard Top 200 at #1 in October, selling 612,000 copies during its first week. Aiken's single, "This is the Night / Bridge Over Troubled Water," won the 2003 Billboard Music Award for Best Single. He was named the Fan's Choice winner at the 2003 American Music Awards.
